The Cornell Daily Sun, established in 1880, is the oldest, continuously independent college newspaper. Our goal is to provide comprehensive coverage and spark thought-provoking conversations amongst our readers through a rich storytelling experience, regardless of the medium. The Sun has long published exclusively on print, but in recent decades, we have adapted to the digital space by posting online around-the-clock, curating photo galleries, editing videos, developing interactive features, publishing on a weekly Snapchat channel, and more.
Anything we publish undergoes a rigorous editing process involving staff with a wide range of skills. Many students never get to learn about the processes behind our most widely viewed posts and the only time others have the opportunity to hear about everything we do is during information sessions.
Our goal of being comprehensive, creative, and honest storytellers has remained constant, even if the platforms through which we fulfill this responsibility are always changing.
This was the message we wanted people to walk away with after participating in our exhibition. Our plan was to display various examples of our work, representing The Sun during different stages of its life. Editors would be stationed around the exhibition to walk visitors through each component.
Here’s a short recap of materials featured at the exhibit!
