There are a number of ways that a newspaper can establish credibility with its readers, but perhaps the most baseline of these ways is through having excellent grammar, spelling and streamlined style guidelines. The Cavalier Daily has its own style guide and trains its staff extensively in how to pursue these, but the paper and the Copy section should be more diligent in not letting simple mistakes slip through the cracks.
Love Connection — The Cavalier Daily’s classic matchmaking feature — used to be a shining jewel in the paper’s Life section. However, both the graduations of major Love Connection writers like Alex Stock and Margaret Mason and the transition to a new website design has left the once-revered feature in the dust. Love Connection was not only fun but a way for the student body to engage with The Cavalier Daily in a light-hearted way.
The Cavalier Daily is in a unique position where it can promote coverage of multicultural organizations around Grounds based on their own merits — however, the paper unfortunately falls short in keeping up with the growing prominence of these groups. To better represent the activities of multicultural and minority organizations on the paper, The Cavalier Daily should designate a beat reporter for these organizations and pursue more features about their work and how it has grown over time.
The Social Media section plays a major role in disseminating Cavalier Daily articles — the majority of page views come from Facebook or Twitter links. However, the section can run more smoothly in cases of emergency and increase accountability among the readership by streamlining protocols and processes on corrections.
As budding media professionals, student journalists often make a concerted effort to create an online persona to demonstrate their own abilities to engage with readers on multiple platforms. For example, during my time as News Editor of The Cavalier Daily two years ago, my co-editor and I required our writers to have a Twitter account to actively share their work and engage with other journalists. The Social Media team on the paper could take on the responsibility of providing more guidance to Cavalier Daily staff for the professional development of the paper at-large and the individual members.
Currently, The Cavalier Daily’s Life section is slightly disjointed. Its major components include food, columns and features and it also used to be home to the pre-Tinder Love Connection series that sent students on blind dates (my column on that, however, will have to be for another day). When glancing through the Life section, its content does not seem to have a coherent theme. To remedy this, the Life section needs to reconsider its purpose and it should ultimately think about whether columns will have a place in the section in years to come.
The Cavalier Daily’s Arts & Entertainment section has a specific ability that other sections don’t — its writers can tell deeply profound stories that come from the arts. The section should utilize this calling and follow the path its new column has forged to better serve its readers.
Finance at the University — it’s a tricky puzzle that I’m convinced no one person really understands, but we all certainly try. Students, parents, alumni, faculty, staff, workers and administration all have thoughts on how we spend money here. The Cavalier Daily should strive to include money in more stories to bring financial issues to light and better create a dialogue around the University’s spending. As the press, The Cavalier Daily has a role in providing the information to hold institutions accountable.

A Facebook page entitled “UVA White Student Union” appeared last Friday and has drawn student backlash on social media.
