The Beacon Web site has a new look this year. Students can access the entire newspaper online by clicking the Beacon tab on MyNorthwestern. This year the Web site includes additional color photos that are not printed in the paper version and the ability for students to comment on and discuss stories.
Junior Caleb Kester, Web designer for the Beacon, is in the process of redoing the site. He hopes that updating the Beacon site will be “a continual thing where I add new things every year.” Possible plans for the Web site include offering Web-exclusive articles and the ability to search the archives for Beacon articles from previous issues.
