So, What Does it Take to Build Up a ROAR?

A note from the editor, O’Donis Person

Recently I have gotten many comments from students who say they have no idea where to find the Roar, how the newspaper functions or how often it’s released. Well I’m here to shine light into the tunnel of confusion and answer many of the questions that are lingering in the minds of some on campus.

This year the Roar team decided to make a transition from the traditional printed form of the newspaper that Finlandia has known for a while, to an interactive online version that allows for commentary. The decision was based upon discovering a cost effective and up to date way of getting news out about topics related to Finlandia’s campus and the community.

Taking on a new avenue of Campus news media has created a road of adventure and hard work in order to post issues on the Roar’s website. That is why we feel that all on campus should at least know how to find it online. Obviously, those reading this article have already found it. Spread the news to your friends so they can find it too as it is updated monthly.

The Roar team is made up of a content moderator, editor, business manager, advisor and a webmaster. We all work together in piecing the Roar into something that we hope is captivating to the online audience. So where do our articles come from? The team produces many articles, but interestingly enough, many of our stories are contributed by other students who like to write.  We are always welcoming new writers for various articles that are fun to read, informative and provoke controversy.

We are also embarking on a new mission of giving out scholarship opportunities to those interested in joining the Roar team next year. Detailed information on this matter will be available next semester. I hope everyone has enjoyed the ROAR so far, see you next year!
