  • Reasons to Join The Link Campaign

    Since the beginning of the semester our venerable team of creative editors has produced weekly promotion videos to encourage students to join The Link.

    Dubbed Reasons to Join, the short videos are a testament to the laid-back atmosphere that pervades in room H-649.

    Spearheaded by former Editor-in-Chief Brandon Johnston, our Reasons to Join have caused a laugh riot of epic proportions on campus.

    Here they are in all of their glory:

    Whether or not you need more reasons to join or at least visit The Link, stay tuned for more videos from our creative staff.

  • Christopher Curtis and Jesse Feith’s Feature Writing Workshop

    The Gazette reporters and former The Link editors Chris Curtis and Jesse Feith hosted a feature writing workshop last week.

    A dozen student journalists showed up at The Link office to get tips from the two established and well-respected journos.

    Before they started though, Chris Curtis had a special message to all student journalists at Concordia.

    Jesse Feith talked about the award-winning feature he wrote two years after the tragedy at Lac-Megantic. He visited several U.S. towns affected by the railway.

    And Curtis talked about the special relationship he has forged with the First Nations people of Kahnawake.

    The Link hosts workshops Fridays at 4 p.m.

  • New Year New Look At The Link

    For The Link‘s 36th anniversary, our masthead has agreed to give your beloved muckraker a new look. We racked our brains last year, trying to figure out ways to make our website more user-friendly, taking hints and borrowing tricks from popular news sites. Our Creative Director Laura Lalonde lent her unique style to create a minimalist logo that we hope will define us in this era of cool—recognizable yet abstract—widgets.

    Let’s face it, our website was in dire need of an update.

    Beside the new logo, we’ve added drop down menus so users can reach sections—especially blogs—a lot quicker than in the past.

    Our photos are bigger. The homepage boasts articles complimented by visuals—something we think is crucial in this visual landscape that is the Internet.

    But more importantly, The Link website is visually less cluttered than it was. Our welcomed readers can refresh the homepage to display a new top story.

    Our outgoing Photo and Video Editor—he will be sorely missed—Brandon Johnston came up with a new sleek intro to adorn our videos this year.

    No doubt, this year The Link is bringing something fresh to its readers. Stay tuned. This is only a start.

    Even our office at H-649 got revamped. Come take a look.
