As told before, making every single issue takes a lot of efforts from many people. Not only does it take a lot of time, but most importantly, it takes student reporters’ courage, confidence and perfectionism on their articles. It is never easy to meet these goals. Nevertheless, The Argus has finished this long marathon this semester and the reporters are gladly willing to share their personal experiences and feelings during this semester.
Lee Jae-won Editor-in-Chief
When I walked into a room, I felt scared. This is what I felt when entering The Argus office for the cub reporter interview in 2015. Although I thought I would not pass the interview, I became a cub reporter. Now, I am the Editor-in-Chief. Since 2015, my entire university life cannot be explained without The Argus.
Actually, it feels like I have lived as the Editor-in-Chief of this magazine a lot longer than any other position that I have had in my life. This semester, The Argus has gone through a hard time. Starting from the April issue, a small number of reporters including me had to fill every page of the magazine. Therefore, I sometimes felt scared, having this question in my mind, “Can we complete this month’s issue?” However, I am now writing the last page of the last issue of this semester!
Of course that The Argus made it to the last issue would not be possible unless I had my wonderful reporters. To our editorial consultant and associate editor, I am sorry that I made you suffer hardships with me this semester. My gratitude for you means more than I can ever express. You encouraged me and helped me go forward in every difficult moment. I want you to know that nothing has made me stronger than your efforts. To my cup reporters, it has been a joy to know you and teach you. I hope you will enjoy every activity at The Argus next semester. If you do your best here, great things are sure to come.
To our readers who have read the articles, joined the quizzes, and showed interests in our events, thank you. In the next semester, The Argus will keep doing our best as the good press.
Since my term is over as this semester ends, I am about to leave The Argus for a while. I still believe The Argus will go further when I am not here. Finally, I want to say thank you to The Argus. I have learned so much thanks to The Argus. Being the Editor-in-Chief has been one of the greatest honors of my life. Now, I am about to walk out of The Argus office. I feel grateful. Thank you all.

It has been such an honor to be with The Argus as an editorial consultant. This will be my last semester in The Argus. I cannot put into words how much I learned from The Argus, how mature I became, and what special moments I experienced that I would not have had elsewhere.
This semester, I have often been watching other reporters work at a closer distance. They have made The Argus issues with all their heart and I cannot describe how much effort they put to make even a single page. Now, the semester is over and I hope they enjoy their sweetest moment as a reporter. Moreover, I really hope other HUFSans would also join and get a chance to feel what we felt in The Argus.

It has been a year since I first set foot on The Argus. Beforehand, I never imagined I would come this far. To everyone’s surprise, however, I managed to stick around.
The main appeal of The Argus is that you never know what might strike you. Thanks to The Argus, I have developed a hard core; to always be prepared for the worst case scenario and do my best to make the impossible possible. I have also learned that man can ironically perform his best at his worst. Above all, I am most grateful to have gained some of the most trustworthy and admirable companions, who have shown unparalleled level of support and hard work to make The Argus every month.
