Welcome to the Fall 2017 semester. The Flare has a new look, several new staff members and the same mission: To give you the latest campus news and to provide our readers with a variety of features, sports coverage and commentary – and to do so with integrity and reliability. Our latest issue is on the racks now, and features THE FLARE-FILES, filled with tips and hints for KC students. You can find it at several locations on the Kilgore and Longview campuses, or on the sidebar of any page on this website. Keep an eye out here and on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for more.
