They say that all good things must come to an end, and unfortunately, this is the case for Thunderground. At the close of the fall semester semester, the organization will be discontinued.
I want to start off by thanking those of you who have been supportive of this project; as journalists operating outside of the school-sponsored organization, we faced many issues. Groups within the University, as well as SUU News employees, were blocked from working with us, it took me over a month to get permission to interview collegiate athletes, I never received a single press release from the Marketing Communication Office despite being told multiple times that I would be added to the mailing list and University employees had to contact me secretly to provide tips for investigative pieces.
