Our View

Published: August 23, 2005

This summer, The Corsair’s office underwent a long-overdue facelift worthy of television makeover shows.

As news media, The Corsair must constantly evolve to suit the interests of PJC students.  Staff members made it their mission to experiment with different forms of bringing the news to the public.

So, the renovations began. Two new computers,  computer software, several thousand dollars’ worth of professional office furniture, a brand new digital camera and, of course, an ever-indispensable coffee maker later, The Corsair’s staff is ready to tackle yet another semester.

Bet on some major improvements in its coverage.

With the help of a new Nikon D70 camera and some stellar new staff members, The Corsair’s photography should quickly catch up to its high-caliber articles and award-winning layout.

The Corsair will feature more sports coverage as our photographers add photo galleries to the Web site.

But perhaps even more importantly, The Corsair’s new media gear is setting the stage for a major revamp of its Web site, eCorsair.com. With the help of innovative digital audio gear, eCorsair.com will feature media elements such as video clips and audio slideshows.

The revamped Web site will cover breaking news between issues, expand on articles in the print edition and feature calendars for local events.

Watch for The Corsair’s and eCorsair.com’s improvements- and have a great semester.
