As we come to the close of the semester and this final issue of The Arbiter, on behalf of the editorial staff, I would like to thank you for engaging with our content.
It has been quite the year and as I step into the Editor-In-Chief position for next year, there are a few things I think are important to communicate to our readership.
When our Director of Student Media followed other opportunities and left the Arbiter in the fall, we were, in essence, adopted by the Student Involvement and Leadership Center.
Now, instead of working as a distant entity in tandem with university organizations, Student Media is part of the SILC umbrella.
As we move into the next school year, this new organization should help increase our efficiency and cement our student-led infrastructure.
In addition to these management changes, The Arbiter will now be switching to a once-a-week print run. Instead of printing two issues each week on Monday and Thursday, we will be printing one issue a week on Tuesday.
This will allow us to bolster and focus on our web content. Even further we will be able to polish and better explore our print content, making each Tuesday issue something consistently worth picking up off the stands.
Overall, you can expect the same amount, if not more content from The Arbiter. Arbiteronline.com will be constantly updated and maintained over the summer and will continue even stronger once classes resume in the fall.
This stronger web presence will provide more multimedia content, including videos, polls, podcasts and more.
As an organization, we are striving to inform the Boise State community in the best way possible. We believe that these web-first processes will help accomplish this goal.
In the end, we would like to create a news organization where information is always pertinent and immediately available.
Organizing timely web posts and in-depth print pieces will help our content constantly become more and more professional.
Even further, offering strong multimedia packages with our consistent web content will help make our content more engaging and impactful.
Make sure to bookmark our website and watch for our first Tuesday issue, printing August 25. As always, post any feedback you might have on our social media pages and on our website.
