Argo to promote individuality

Josh Rouse

Though the Review has been in full swing for a few weeks now, this is the first issue of the Argo for the new school year.

For those who are new to Washburn or the Review, the Argo is a 12-page arts and entertainment insert that gives students a chance to see what entertainment avenues are available to them.

We sometimes plan the Argo to have a theme, which is covered through the first seven pages with movie reviews, sudokus, other A&E news and an entertainment calendar taking up the rest of the issue.

If you have been taking summer classes or have been on campus during the summer, you may have noticed we printed two Argos during the holiday. During that time, we have been trying out some new ideas and figuring out ways to use the Web site to further your Argo experience.

We are planning to make an online section specifically for reader submissions, whether they be songs, poems, pictures, letters to the editor or simply suggestions. We will pick some of those to print in the Argo each month, so if you have anything that you’d like to see in print, send it to [email protected] or bring it by the office, located at the basement level of the Memorial Union.

We also plan to use social networking Web sites such as Facebook and Myspace to reach our readers and allow them to reach back, as well as preview bands that we are reading and promote entertainment events around the city and campus.

In this way, I hope that all of our readers will be interested in displaying their individuality through the Argo, and we will strive to keep you all informed and entertained.
