Specifically, the purposes of The Purple & White include:

• The Purple & White exists to serve its students first in both readership and leadership arenas. Students are the paper’s primary audience and primary producers. The Purple & White is entirely produced by students, giving those interested in journalism the opportunity to participate in student journalism and learn how to work as a part of an editorial team.

• The Purple & White serves the undergraduate students of Millsaps College as its primary audience. Impact as a news value for readers is considered as it affects undergraduate students. Therefore, angles on stories, sourcing, feature discussions and editorials should be viewed in the light of a student forum—students writing to inform and discuss with students.

    I love to read the Purple & White, and when it came out in hard copy i would always take a copy to classes and point out to students interesting articles etc, in order to encourage them to read it. I would like it so much if you would send an email once a week that has the title and short blurb of the main articles with links to them. There are many publications to which i subscribe for exactly that kind of service, and I READ THEM BECAUSE THEY SEND THE EMAIL. I regret to say i don’t read the P&W nearly as much as i want/should because unlike other publications, it is never “in my face” with a reminder or notice. I think sending the entire campus an email once a week would really increase readership and would enhance our campus community conversation.
    Thanks for considering!
