The advantage of a web-based platform is that we can update every day. Our “distribution date” is constant. Space is never an issue, so we can publish your essay dissecting the political implications of Lady Gaga’s Grammy egg entrance or give the world a preview of your next Heimbold photography display. We want to capture every facet of Sarah Lawrence life because, after all, our student body contains some of the most interesting people in the greater Westchester area, if not the world.
And now, to borrow (former SLC student) Win Butler’s words, we are ready to start. We have four sections that, when stretched, will encompass all we want to say. What’s Up features the top five events on campus every week, plus theatre previews, dance party details and notes on general campus evolution. Speak is where we rant, praise and debate. You know how “Sarah Lawrence is different, and so are you?” In Speak, those differences are brought up, examined and discussed. Create is a space to showcase student art, poetry and all other forms of creative expression. If you want to broadcast your dance performance to those who didn’t get to see it live, Create is the place to do it. Finally, with Wanderlust , we explore our surroundings. If you’re curious about the best coffee in Brooklyn or where to go swimming in Florence, check out Wanderlust for an informed perspective. Of course, most of Wanderlust’s content will be based in New York City, but we expect to feature notes from those who are studying abroad or even embarking on a greater journey to inner peace (see Jana’s Yoga Pose of the Week).
So, the structure is established. We have hammered together the first two by fours, but we need your help to build this monument higher. There is no blueprint. We are open to all ideas, even if you want to put a window in the floor. Do you have something to say? Email firstname.lastname@example.org and help us shake things up.
