Primer 2021

Allow us to introduce you to Primer, the first edition of the 56th volume of City on a Hill Press. Primer is a resource and starting point for the year — we hope the articles, guides, and updates in these virtual pages make Santa Cruz feel more familiar.

City on a Hill Press has and will continue to follow the goals of our mission: watchdogging the university, spotlighting underrepresented voices, and publishing articles for students by students.

We look forward to using this platform to find better, more helpful ways, for voicing the triumphs and concerns of the student body. Thank you for joining us, as we kick off this challenging and exciting new year.

Take care of yourselves and each other.
