Well, I’m going to share with you our process. First, the team holds a meeting during Week Zero or Week One. We all share our ideas, brainstorm for articles and decide who we are going to ask to be the Staff Spotlight, Around Campus, etc. We all receive assignments and take charge on sending emails, compiling lists and writing stories. We set our deadlines. We have an internal deadline when all submissions are due. This is usually the beginning of Week Four. Then, my team and I edit all articles, and I format most of them. We meet again to finalize all the documents, and then they are sent for further editing. Once that process is complete, we send all the content and images to the Marketing Department.

About one to two weeks later, we get a draft to review. Marketing does the entire layout for the newsletter. We give our feedback to Marketing and let them know of any changes to be made. Then, when the final product is approved, the e-Reader version is made. The newsletter gets posted on Blackboard and the LIFE website, and links are emailed to all of the staff. So, that’s the newsletter process in a nutshell. We would love your feedback. Send any comments to StaffNewsletter@LIFE.edu. We had so many ideas this quarter, so we have a lot of great content for you to read! Want to know more about LIFE’s Diversity Committee? Read their article called “Diversity is the Spice of Life.” Get to know the new Physical Plant Director Larry Riddle in this quarter’s “Staff Spotlight.” As promised, we have brought back “Life-Steps to Wellness,” and you can learn about how to eat healthy on a budget. We have featured the Postgraduate Department in this quarter’s “Around Campus” feature. Are you a notary and want to let the LIFE community know of your service? Read the “Notary Public” blurb and let us know your information to be featured in the next issue. Over the break, we all received some very sad news about several members of the LIFE community. We lost some great people, and one of them was a staff member. We have included a memorial to Cynthia Lund in this issue. Several staff and faculty members shared their memories and pictures of Cynthia. She will be missed. Have a great rest of the quarter! April Basler Staff Newsletter Editor CC-HOP Office Assistant 1
