Campus Echo, the award-winning student newspaper at North Carolina Central University, has kicked off the 2012-13 academic year with a new design of the Campus Echo Online homepage and Arts & Entertainment page. Campus Echo Online has increased its multimedia production, social media presence and added more national and international news coverage.
One of the main features of the redesign is a large tab box of featured stories and a dedicated space for multimedia journalism. There are now weekly and daily news updates via Facebook and Twitter @campusecho.
Online readers also can subscribe to an email newsletter. Look for the “Subscribe to the Newsletter” link at the top right of the homepage.
Since 1999 the Campus Echo print and online editions have won 175 national awards from organizations including the Black College Communication Association, the American Scholastic Press Association, and the Society of Professional Journalists.
Recent and current Campus Echo editors have been recognized by the National Newspaper Publishers Association and have interned with the The New York Times Student Journalism Institute and the Freedom Forum’s Diversity Institute Multimedia Scholars Program.
Campus Echofaculty adviser Bruce dePyssler has been a recipient of the Barry Bingham Sr. Fellowship, an award given by National Conference of Editorial Writers, for his career-long contribution to advancing minority student success in the field of journalism.
