Welcome back everyone!

The McKendree Review is excited to return for a full semester of action. As you probably have guessed, we are still using the WordPress site as our main domain so some of the functions may seem familiar to you. If you are not familiar with WordPress, I implore you to explore our website. If you are still having questions regarding the domain’s layout, please email mckreview@mckendree.edu for assistance.

What’s new?

The Review is going to start a monthly project called: Department 101. Each issue will showcase a different department as a way to gear students towards learning about departments that may be different from their own. This project will also serve a purpose for prospective students. Granted, not all of McKendree’s departments can be showcased within ten months, but if Department 101 is successful, then we hope it will become a regular column.

We are also wanting to start a column called, “‘Leditor’ Advice,” to replace the “Girl Talk” and “Guy Speak” columns. If you have a question regarding anything campus-related and would like to hear the McKendree Review’s opinion, feel free to email us and ask.

Be sure to check out the Sudoku! There will be a surprise waiting for you.

Thank you everyone who submitted articles and creative writing pieces for the first issue. I know it can be hard to nudge yourself to write something during the summer, so again, thank you.

Don’t forget to stop by our booth at the Involvement Fair on Sept. 4 from 11 AM – 2 PM. We will have a sign-up sheet for anybody who is interested in the following criteria:

  • Writing
  • Editing
  • Photography
  • Layout (for printed issues, we use InDesign)
  • Website management (www.mckreview.com)
  • All of the Above

We look forward to hear from fellow McKendreans throughout the year and hope that everyone has a great academic school semester!
