Minot State University Red and Green newspaper moves online

MINOT, N.D. – On the weekend before a new Red and Green issue date, the newspaper’s office hums with student staff activity as stories are placed, layouts are adjusted, and photos are captioned.

This year, however, finds the Minot State student newspaper adjusting the rest of its production for the Spring 2020 semester to an online format.

"With Minot State's transition to remote classes for the remainder of the semester, the University's student-run newspaper will be publishing its spring issues exclusively on RedGreenPaper.com, while highlighting individual stories on its social media channels," said Red and Green faculty advisor Alison McAfee. "Now, more than ever, it's important to stay connected. Be sure to follow the Red and Green's Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram handles to keep up with the latest campus news and information written by students, for students." 

The editorial team has been modifying their publication schedule while adapting to remote learning.

"It's been a challenge for students to suddenly transition to online classes, and the Red and Green staff has been faced with some difficulties since we can no longer meet in person to plan stories, but we're utilizing Facetime and email to try to bridge that gap,” Shalom Baer, Red and Green editor, said.

The newspaper will connect with its readership via daily social media updates and by adding several news stories a week to the website RedGreenPaper.com. The Red and Green can be found on Facebook @MinotStateRedGreen, Instagram @MSURedGreen, and Twitter @RGNewspaper.

"Even though we won't have a physical paper this semester, we'll still strive to provide news to students and keep everyone connected during this abnormal time,” said Baer.
