UR Launches New Format for Bulletin

By Purnell T. Cropper | January 12, 2010

Welcome to the new Arcadia University Bulletin, which will be published twice weekly. In addition to a Tuesday issue, watch for an early morning Friday issue that cues up what’s happening on campus.

University Relation staffers Sue Gettlin and Purnell Cropper, along with Web Services’ Matt McManus, have been hard at  work building the new Bulletin format using WordPress. “The Bulletin format was nearly four years old, and we wanted a fresh look and a format that takes advantage of the richness of the Bulletin’s content,” Gettlin says.

The new Bulletin home page displays three rotating feature articles, four excerpted news articles, and categorized headlines. Readers can share and/or bookmark content using built-in social media tools.

The right column serves as an information center with widgets displaying “Let’s Go” ads, event calendar listings, news releases and recent campus event photos.  Previously posted articles are available under the “Archives” link at top. Readers can search archived articles by the last 30 posts, by category or by month.
