April is a busy month in The Cavalier Daily‘s newsroom! We’ve published three special issues so far this month — faculty salaries, a food issue, and Founder’s Day — and we have a sustainability issue hitting distribution boxes next week.
I am particularly proud of an analysis we published earlier this month of a 164-page Freedom of Information Request that author Jeff Thomas provided to the paper. The documents showed the University’s advancement office has been tracking the admissions status of children of wealthy donors in hopes of getting certain applicants accepted or waitlisted.
Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tom Perriello visited Grounds earlier this week and our news and video teams worked together to conduct some video interviews that we embedded throughout this article.
The Cavalier Daily has also ventured into podcasting this semester, with our Arts & Entertainment team taking the lead in producing a series called “The Pitch List.” You can take a listen to the most recent episode here.
Overall, our content has been reaching a large audience on social media — our average Facebook reach is 55,000 people!
