Happy #NewsEngagementDay ! #UTANED18— carrrmina (@MinaDelTex) October 2, 2018
A former classmate told me that unlike his friends he likes to stay up to date with campus news by reading the @UTAShorthorn As a commuting student I also get my news from @NPR @TexasStandard @npratc and of course @LatinoUSA ?? pic.twitter.com/mHxlbsGPiG
It's News Engagement Day y'all. @medysworld is out here killing the photo game. Joining the @UTAShorthorn staff was by far one of the best things to happen to me. Come and check us out on the Central Library mall. We'll be here til 3. #utaned18 pic.twitter.com/p2ELKtpvkh— Cate Sherrill (@CaitlinDiane16) October 2, 2018
It's National News Engagement Day, y'all!?️— Narda Pérez (@NardaLPerez) October 2, 2018
I get my news every day from @UTAShorthorn via our daily e-newsletter, website & weekly print. (yes, we still exist.)
How and where do you get your news? I also read @dallasnews @nytimes @washingtonpost & more.#UTANED18 pic.twitter.com/ScNdHjinkb
You’re surrounded by information each day: social media, television and radio broadcasts, text messages, fliers and billboards, word-of-mouth and more.
There’s a difference between information and news.
The Shorthorn, your student daily news operation, and UT Arlington’s journalism program and Communication Department have teamed up to help students across the campus engage with news during the first National News Engagement Day. Along with campuses across the country, we’ll spend today:
- Raising awareness about how to be informed
- Encouraging you to read, watch, tweet or comment on the news
- Educating you on journalistic principles
How can we do that in one day?
SNAP AND SHARE
We want to see you participating with today’s news, wherever you find it. Snap a selfie with your news — or take a photo of someone else engaging with the news — and share it on this site by clicking the link at the left. You can also share it, using #utaned18, on social media.
MEET THE PRESS
Ever wonder how The Shorthorn staff decides what is news? Wonder what the heck they were thinking when they published that photo? Ask away during our Meet the Press Twitter Chat. Editors will be geared up on Twitter from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. to answer your questions and take your story suggestions for The Shorthorn. Simply tweet with #utaned18 during that time, and they’ll answer!
