Moving into next semester and beyond, as editor-in-chief I am looking forward to a few changes around the newsroom.
The Plainsman website is going to be redesigned in order for users to have information presented to them in a creative and aesthetically pleasing format.
Look for more frequent photos and videos pertaining to student life, as well as up-to-date Twitter and Facebook updates to keep you informed wherever you are.
A free mobile app is also in the works–a way to access all of The Plainsman content with the touch of a button on almost any smartphone. This will also put Auburn’s brand in the Apple and Android app store for anyone to access and download.
This semester our staff has drastically improved the amount and quality of the content posted online. We will strive to continue this progress and continue to keep the students and Auburn community informed.
Feedback is also an important and crucial part of the Plainsman process, and I want to encourage every student, faculty and staff member to let us know how we’re doing through comments online and letters to the editor.
Our opinions email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Submit your thoughts here and look for them to be published in the following week’s publication and online.
Social media is also going to be a focus for our staff moving forward. Tweeting live events, covering new movements on campus and keeping our followers updated through constant and informative tweets is imperative.
Every student organization should also have equal representation and be held accountable for their actions. Constant coverage of these groups is important and informing students of campus events in a timely and consistent manner is important.
The Plainsman will continue to tell truthful, interesting stories every week , and I look forward to being it’s editor.
