Collegian website redesigned

The Collegian website has a new look.

The Ashland University student newspaper, in working with web host, redesigned The site launched late Wednesday morning.

The Collegian ended its print edition in December 2015. Adviser Matt Tullis — a former editor-in-chief of the newspaper and now an associate professor of journalism at AU — said the new website was a logical extension of the evolution of the paper.

“When we ended the print edition, we knew we had to spend more time on making the website more appealing,” Tullis said. “The new site is much easier to navigate and looks far less cluttered. We think readers will appreciate the redesign.”

Part of the new site’s appeal, Tullis said, is its visual nature.

“Photos are presented in a much more aesthetic way,” he said, “which means the great work of our student photographers will get the showcase it deserves.”

Stories are also much easier to read, with larger text size and a less-jumbled design.
