Are you tired of reading two week old news? Do you find yourself frustrated trying to fold up large, floppy pages of paper? Are you sick of seeing old newspapers lying around Baldwin or in your Friday morning classrooms?
Hi, Kyle Gillis here, and I’m here to tell you about the new online Pleiad. For no cost at all, you can log online and read about all the news that’s going on around campus.
The secret to the new online Pleiad is the quicker pace of publication and the different multimedia facets we’ll be using to deliver news to the Albion College community in a creative, informative way. What used to be black and white text with a page or two of colored pictures now is an entire Web site full of stories, videos, podcasts, and live blogs.
Visit the Pleiad Web site now and you’ll be able to vote in an interactive poll, send us photos for online contests, and suggest ideas for unique videos for our ‘fifteen seconds of fame’ feature.
But wait, there’s more. If you visit the Web site in the next few minutes and want to voice your opinion about our stories, you can do so by simply commenting at the bottom of the stories. No more dropping cryptic letters in editors’ KC boxes and hoping that they get published. Now you can post your comment and it’ll show up right on the website for all other readers to see.
If you’d like to be updated when the Pleiad publishes new stories, subscribe to our Facebook page or Twitter page @PleiadOnline.
No more loose pages or overflowing newsstands. Try the new Pleiad for free and if you don’t like it, let us know what we can do to make you like it.
