Welcome to The Triangle Alumni Website
As part of our ongoing efforts to establish relationships and enhance The Triangle through alumni involvement, we’re excited to announce the launch of The Triangle alumni website and alumni network. The website you’re viewing now will allow you to connect with current staff members and other alumni in an interactive manner that will keep you updated on the progress and current state of the newspaper. If you haven’t done so already, we hope to see you sign up soon!
We will be periodically posting articles and news updates here about what we’re doing at The Triangle, how we plan on moving forward, and how you can get involved in all this. We also hope to dig through the archives to rediscover the history of the organization and share it here.
By signing up for an account on this website, you’ll have access to all it’s content, be able to take part in the conversation on the stories we share, view our member directory and contact other alumni, and get invited to alumni-staff events we plan on hosting throughout the year.
Stay tuned for more updates coming soon.
Hi there – I look forward to being in touch and doing what we can to keep the paper going with good business practices. Let me know what the goal is and how I can help. Cheers!
The immediate goal is to get the paper printing again, by collecting enough in donations and building a new business team that can effectively make ad sales. Everyone knows the print advertising market isn’t what it used to be, but at the same time a single full-page color ad can pay for an issue, and The Triangle has very little overhead. There need to be more advertisements, and more consistent advertisements, while expanding into other revenue streams. If you have business ideas it would be great to have these posted on the forum.
The bigger goal is to provide some organizational stability at The Triangle by providing advice, critique and some form of financial oversight. Beyond simply being able to print a paper, the staff will benefit from the experience and insight of alumni—and become better journalists. While we’re discussing how to do this in some formal way, I’m sure it would be appreciated if alumni simply visited the office or e-mailed their comments to the editor.
