Meet your editors

We at the Runner would like to extend a warm welcome back to Kwantlen for the Fall 2010 semester. Three of us are new around here and we had a lot of fun getting to know the ins and outs of the paper this summer. Now that school’s back in we’d all like to get to know some of you as well. Here’s a bit about us and feel free to drop by the office and we can all get to know each other  a little better.
