Last week, members of the Stanford Class of 2013 Wacky Walked their way to the exciting challenges and opportunities that await them beyond the bubble. This week, the Daily team begins our summer volume, ready to take on the challenges of the new school year.
Much is changing this summer as we develop exciting new products for the Stanford Daily Publishing Corporation. First amongst these changes is the cessation of printing The Daily summer weekly edition. We will, of course, continue to publish content on our website, www.stanforddaily.com, with regular print production resuming at the beginning of fall quarter.
Members of the Stanford community know well the frenetic pace of life on the Farm — a pace that continues over the summer. Students and alumni are busy undertaking ambitious projects: in entrepreneurship, athletics, research and much more. Over here at The Daily, we’re also doing exciting work — everything from redesigning the look and feel of our website to restructuring our paradigm for staff development. Of particular note is a book documenting the rise of Stanford football, “Rags to Roses,” written by Daily editors Joseph Beyda, George Chen and Sam Fisher. Check out the book’s announcement and weekly excerpts here.
The Stanford Daily is simultaneously a newsroom and business, but most importantly it is a classroom. We’re so privileged to be learning by experience and contributing to this awesome industry. This summer and beyond, The Daily will continue to push the limits of what a college media company can be.
The summer volume will continue to be led by current Daily staffers and a group of talented high school interns working on a diverse set of initiatives. If you are interested in being a part of the summer staff, please contact summer managing editor Marshall Watkins at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As always, your input is critical to our growth. Questions, comments, suggestions and criticisms are always welcome at the Daily office behind Old Union or over email at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. We also welcome news tips at email@example.com.
