I think the paper’s better because the bridge is back.

Pretend it’s Week 1 of the semester for a moment.

This has been the way to the communications building for the past year.

It’s crunch time. CollegePublisher has FINALLY let go of our website’s domain name and we’re FINALLY up and running with our new company Detroit Softworks. Because of CP, we missed out on the chance to do an online Orientation Issue of the Tan & Cardinal. This sucked… but because of one thing and one thing only this couldn’t get us down…


It seems so petty, but our little bridge’s year-long makeover really put us and all art and communication students in a bit of a funk.

This is the new ten minute walk way now that the Main St. bridge is back...

Not only were we constantly late for classes because of Cleveland Avenue traffic, but we felt segregated and disconnected. How are we supposed to be the media voice of the campus when we’re stuck on the other side of a bunch of backhoes??

Now, I’m not claiming that the bridge construction is the only reason for our less than lustrous newspapers spring quarter, but I am claiming that the very first story in our very first issue this year was about it’s reopening… and it looked like this:

Nifty, huh? Clear pictures. Great design. And content worth reading.

Not a bad start if I do say so myself 🙂
