Welcome to The Pelican News

Dear Readers,

At JPCatholic, news often seems to come from either hearsay or Facebook. The Pelican News is here to change that. This student publication is a dependable place to get information concerning the school, its students, and the greater Escondido community.

The incorporated columns are what are most relevant to our lives as students: City News, Campus News, Lifestyle, and Arts and Entertainment. Each issue includes a featured artist from the JPCatholic student community. The team at The Pelican strives to ensure whether times are panicky or peaceful, we are relied upon as an unbiased source of information.

We hope this will strengthen communication between students and staff, and give Escondido a glimpse of our impact as a university. 

We extend a special thank you to Professor Culbertson for being our advisor and mentor along the way. We would like to recognize our staff for dedicating the time and energy to realize this endeavor. We look forward to learning and growing with you all as this newspaper continues to develop. Finally, thank you for joining us in this journey.

Kristen Lavan//Editor-in-Chief
