Off the Hook

Today’s home page feature at NCSU.EDU is an interview <  http://www.ncsu.edu/features/2010/06/leading-her-peers/  > with student body president Kelly Hook, who will be blogging <  http://www.ncsu.edu/features/2010/06/off-the-hook/  > for us during the term of her presidency. In this era of social-media supremacy, we were looking to find a way to connect Student Government with our current students, but also future students as well. In her column, titled “Off the Hook,” she’ll keep everyone aware of what she and  Student Government is up to, while serving as a sounding board for readers as well. (Feel free to ask her questions here <  mailto:sbp@ncsu.edu  > – some of the questions will be featured in future posts.)
On a related note, we’ve added a couple of student writers – Amaris Hames and Candace Jones – to our Web editorial team, which we hope will add an air of authenticity to our student-focused stories like our recent feature on Mr. Wuf tryouts <  http://www.ncsu.edu/features/2010/04/becoming-mr-wuf/  > or the iPad Test Drive <  http://www.ncsu.edu/features/tag/ipad/   >  .   Our full-time writers are great at what they do, but students have a way of capturing the passion of student-centered topics, events and news like we older folks can’t. And as I like to say, Passion Rules!

In this era of social-media supremacy, we were looking to find a way to help connect Student Government leaders with not only their fellow students, but future students as well. In Kelly’s column, “Off the Hook,” she’ll keep everyone aware of what she and Student Government are up to, all while serving as a sounding board for readers. (Feel free to ask her questions here – some of the questions & answers will be featured in future posts.)

Not that I’m saying we’re older, but you know what I mean.

Passion Rules!
