As a UND graduate, you know that’s not always easy for me to say.
But I must give credit where credit is due. Here’s to NDSU!
We’ve had a great week at areavoices. Just yesterday, Minnesota State University Moorhead started its Dragon News blog. In addition, I’m expecting at least a couple of K12 schools to be up and running with their blogs very soon. Details to follow!
I’ve met with school representatives over the last few weeks and one of the ways I sold them on the great possibilities of blogging was by using North Dakota State University as my example. NDSU News has been on areavoices for a couple of years. The media relations department there uses the blog very effectively to deliver the latest news and announcements from campus. Not only that, but at least one NDSU department is blogging as well. The chemistry and biology department shares with us the latest research in the field and communicates with students through it’s blog. The NDSU bowling team is even blogging.

Perhaps, NDSU realized ahead of the pack that school news is hot!
Two of our most popular blogs include the Bison media blog and the UND Sioux hockey blog, both written by sports journalists. People crave college and high school sports news! Can you give it to them?
If you work for a school or have a school you’d like to see blogging, let me know. I’d love to visit with school officials to tell them more about it. Chances are I’ll be pulling up NDSU NEWS for help! Thanks again Bison! You rock!
