With the move to online-only classes Aug. 24, Technician, Nubian Message and Roundabout paused their printed editions to concentrate on their digital platforms for the 2020 fall semester, but little else will change for NC State Student Media.
Technician and Nubian Message will continue to update their websites and social media platforms continuously with news, sports, arts and entertainment, opinion pieces and other information of interest to the NC State community. Roundabout, Student Media’s newest publication, will use this pause in its print schedule to build and launch its own digital platforms.
WKNC 88.1 FM HD-1/HD-2 will continue broadcasting 24/7/365, and student DJs will continue to broadcast live from the station’s studio in Witherspoon Student Center.
Agromeck, NC State’s yearbook, and Windhover, NC State’s literary and visual arts magazine, are also planning to publish both their books as usual; Windhover is traditionally released each April, and Agromecks are shipped to students’ homes each August.
Finally, the Student Business and Marketing Office will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. It is located at 307 Witherspoon, and the main office number is (919) 515-2411.
All Student Media groups have adopted a hybrid in-person/remote work model to ensure a safe working environment for both the students and professional staff members.
With that in mind, the Student Media Board of Directors will meet virtually until further notice. Its regular meetings are scheduled for Sept. 8, Oct. 13, Nov. 10, Jan. 12, March 2 and April 13. Each meeting will begin at 7 p.m. and are open to the public. To virtually attend any of these meetings, contact Patrick Neal, Director of Student Media Advising, at firstname.lastname@example.org for a link to the meeting.
