Cornell University EIC Shows How It’s Done

As part of its ongoing “Best Colleges in America” vertical, Business Insider has published a slide show put together by Rebecca Harris, editor-in-chief of Cornell University student newspaper The Cornell Daily Sun. Her Ithaca, NY print daily was ranked #1 in the student category for 2013 by Princeton Review.

The slide show is great fun. At one point, Harris depicts an old AP artifact that no one in the current group is quite able to identify. Looks to us like a very old wire-copy teletype.

Our favorite slide shows the “Quote Wall”, featuring famous words spoken by Daily Sun journalists past. For example, Class of 1991 reporter David B. Folkenflik once told an agronomy professor: “I’m sorry sir, but I’m not at liberty to offer you retroactive off-the-record status.”

Congrats to the gang at the Sun on the Princeton Review honor. Looks like they have a well-oiled operation that is able to consistently meet the “hard” 12:30 a.m. print production deadline, not to mention live up to the standards set by former staffers Kurt Vonnegut and E.B. White.
