April’s Top 5 Stories

1. Interactive Timeline: The Road to Unionization

We published another timeline! The Coalition of Graduate Rights has had a long trek. Over the course of Monday and Tuesday, graduate student workers held an election about whether to allow CGR to represent them in collective bargaining with MU and the UM System. This timeline is a way for us to look at the grad student movement’s progression chronologically. The University News section has had a lot on its plate this year. University News Editor Taylor Blatchford compiled this timeline with the help of Assistant Online Development Editor Reiker Seiffe.

2. Residence Hall Guide

We did a little something for students who were going through Residents’ Online Access to Rooms, MU’s housing selection program, this year. A guide to living in the residential halls was missing from our repertoire, but thanks to the projects and photo teams, staffer Nicole Newman and MUTV staffer Aviva Okeson-Haberman, now we’ve got one. Check out the interactive map on this project.

3. Hometown hero: Brumfield grows into role with Missouri baseball

It’s baseball season, something Projects Editor Peter Baugh is very passionate about. He wrote this feature on freshman Connor Brumfield, who had his batting debut this April. Peter was able to talk to Brumfield’s mom and high school coach at Rock Bridge High School. This gave the story more depth and makes it a great read.

4. MOVE Magazine’s Food Guide

MOVE Magazine’s food guide came out Wednesday. MOVE Editor Katie Rosso has spent the last month planning this guide, which is food war-themed. The paper hit newsstands Wednesday, but check out the whole guide online, which is designed by Reiker. Just a warning: It might make you hungry.

5. MSA Senate challenged by poor retention

Every year, the Missouri Student Association runs into a problem with senator retention and low attendance at full Senate meetings. MSA beat writer Andrew Frein tackled this story and spoke to committee chairpersons, MSA’s senate speaker and former senators.
