Well, we’ve finally done it. We’ve got our own website. You can now find us at TheLakerCurrent.com. We will publish the first Monday of every month.
We also have a new facebook page (www.facebook.com/TheLakerCurrent) so please “Like” us. We are also on Twitter (LakerCurrent). We will be adding updates and late-breaking information throughout the month on both of those sites.
This month we’ve added several new writers and I’m really excited to be working with them. Several of them have stories this month. You’ll get to read even more from them next month.
Sometimes it’s been hard to believe we would ever get here. Since May 2011 we’ve been publishing The Laker Current monthly on Mid Michigan Community College’s website at midmich.edu/lakercurrent. You can find all of our older stories there, including our January 2012 edition.
Since we started we’ve added new features including Mid Michigan Eats — a review of locally owned restaurants, On the Big Screen — a monthly movie review, a Creative Writing section and this month we’re adding one that I’m really looking forward to Professors who Rock — a series about MMCC professors and staff who spend time jammin’.
If you have an event or group you would like to see us cover, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and one of us will get back with you. If you’re interested in joining us, meet us Mondays at 10:30 at the Doan Center in the study area near room 126 (past the bookstore.) At 11 a.m. we go to room 127. If you’re running late, feel free to join us there. If you can’t make it and would like to write for us, email us at email@example.com and we’ll work it out.
Enjoy looking around. We’ve got lots for you to see!
