Welcome back, SMU. Winter Break always goes by too quickly, but I hope the first day of classes goes well for you.
The Daily Campus is back to full-time operations, and we’ve made a few changes since December:
We’ve had some staff changes—which is usual for each semester. Some people have left, some have joined, some have stayed and others have just switched positions. I’d bore you with the details, but I don’t have the space. Just go read the staff box.
We’re bringing back our Editorial Board once a week. Each Tuesday we’ll be bringing you our take on the issues of the week. Each unsigned editorial will represent the views of the Board.
The biggest change we’ve made is to our Web site (yes, we have one: smudailycampus.com). You’ll notice a new design. If you poke around, you’ll see that it’s more user-friendly. For all of you smartphone users, we’ve got a new mobile site as well, which will make it easier for you to get news wherever you are.
Furthermore, you’ll notice that we’ve expanded our online operations. Our Style editor Sarah Bray has brought over SMU Style, a blog she runs in her spare time. If you want to know what goes on behind the scenes, check out the Newsroom Confidential blog. Interested in SMU-related politics? You’ll want to look at our Hilltop Politics blog, which looks at the people and organizations who make the decisions that affect SMU.
We want your opinion too, so be on the lookout for more polls on the Web. Don’t forget to vote for our special “Best Of” issue that will come out next Friday: it’s your chance to sound off on your favorite things (including best fraternity and sorority). And as always, you can send us columns or letters for the Opinion Section.
These changes will help us serve you better, SMU. So when there’s SMU news, look to us first. We’ll be here.
