Concordia University Wisconsin’s The Beacon is prepared to deliver campus news to students and faculty for the 2018 fall semester.
“As student editor I am very excited to work with a talented team of writers to revive this newspaper,” Gina Cuccio said. “I think a lot of students forgot we even have a paper, so my goal this semester is to change that.”
The Beacon has been the voice of students since 1984. Student writers work to deliver the most relevant and reliable information about CUW sports, events, and on-campus buzz. The newspaper also aims to represent Concordia in a positive and Christian way.
“I am most excited about the number of people involved this year,” senior writer Logan Jones said. “We have the potential to revive the newspaper so that more students can be informed about the happenings at CUW.”
This fall, The Beacon staff consists of eleven writers, more than the past few semesters. Each week, there will be two to three articles posted pertaining to that week’s on-campus activities, news, athletics, or events.
“We have some great ideas on how to turn The Beacon around and I am looking forward to seeing the newspaper grow,” Cuccio said.
The Beacon staff is planning many events and raffles throughout the semester for students and faculty to take part in. All events will be advertised ahead of time on our Twitter page.
