Mid-Week News and Blog Updates

Starting this post off with a quick reminder: Don't forget to get your ticket to see Lewis Black. Remember the more tickets sold, means the more money that goes back into SAFC, which means that SCOPE could get approved for larger shows in the future. So go buy tickets and enjoy. It is on a Sunday night so what else will you being doing? (The show is on October 10th, some tickets were misprinted but they will still be accepted.)  -You're welcome SCOPE.

Also, you can become a fan or like us or whatever on Facebook. I know we have more than 94 readers so do that and help us get the word out around campus. I have a few flyers and stuff I will be littering campus with, but word of mouth is always the best. Thanks in advance, and no thanks if you don't.

If you are interested in contributing to the blog, don't be shy and shoot me an email ( with any ideas you have. Feel free to give it a shot whether you want to be a full-time ID'd writer or just as a one time thing. If you want to join I'll need a few samples and stuff, but that can be discussed via email. I know there were a few who contacted me over the summer so if you're still out there let me hear you. We want to better represent the student voice and the best way to do that is to have a variety of writers. I would like to include more "letters to the editor" type posts, we featured a handful last year and that helps us better connect with our readers. Let us know what you think and what you want to hear. We can always use guest posts and photos from campus too. I have had two people interested in writing sports posts so that is another direction we may be expanding. Even if you don't want to write, let us know what you want.

One big thing we are trying to expand is student discussion, feedback and comments. Let us know what you think, whether you agree or hate us with a passion, the more responses we get the better. I was very happy to see more comments on yesterday's post (and even happier when others shared their stories and a cop didn't reply saying that it never happened and how terrible I am for making stuff up.) So, that being said, leave a comment, drop an email, follow us on twitter (see links on right-hand tool bar) or message us on facebook. We are all over the internets so hit us up.

UNH Orgs: Do you have an event you want us to plug or preview? If we like it we'll plug it, so drop an email (again: Do you want us to write a post about your org? We can go behind the scenes or send us info and I'll see what we can do. Maybe we can start a featured "Org of the Week" post or something, but again we need you to show an interest.

Stay classy, not UMassy.
