During my sophomore year, it was my job to post all the stories on TheAviso.org. However, the original website was very rough. There was very little that could be accomplished through it. Pictures were very difficult if not impossible to load, and it looked very unprofessional when the posts were finally uploaded.
My junior year, we switched from being a print and web publication to an online-only publication. I was relieved to get rid of the old website and start a new fresh site for The Aviso, even though I was hesitant about getting rid of the print. But the new step into the future of technology was taken.
That year, The Aviso was using WordPress as their website host. I had the official title of web editor. All the stories and multimedia for the week was emailed to my account and I posted it online.
At times, the newspaper wasn’t completely finished and posted until as late as 2 a.m. on Tuesday—the same day it was published online.
The second semester, all the section editors began to upload the articles within their sections. This really spread out the workload and helped the editors do exactly what they wanted for posting the stories.
Now that all the staff on the team is working together even more, I think the teamwork shows in the publication.
If you are wondering what all the celebration is about The Aviso winning an award, read some articles and see what a team can do when they work together.
