Editorial: Student media has a fresh new look

Editorial%3A+Student+media+has+a+fresh+new+look

This summer, a lot of changes were made to student media on campus, including The Collegian and KSDJ. Our paper has officially collaborated with the School of Communication and Journalism, and with that a few announcements must be made.

Don’t worry, the content of the paper won’t be changing, and neither will our policy of student independence. Our staff will still be in full control of what is published and the overall look of the paper.

Instead, COJO will mostly be helping with equipment and providing stories and reporters through classwork in courses like Basic News Writing and Feature Writing.

The biggest change to come with this partnership is a new name for student media as a whole. The Collegian and KSDJ together will now form the Jacks Media Den to combine marketing and reporting opportunities in the future.

With this new name also comes a lot of exciting opportunities for the student body to get involved with the university’s student media directly.

Plans are in the works to host a logo design contest open to any interested students. The winner will have their submission chosen as the official logo for Jacks Media Den, so be on the lookout for more details coming soon.

We look forward to this new chapter in our history, and hope you all will continue to follow along with us in our journey to redesign and renew student media at our university.
