Golden Gate [X]press launches new Web site

I generally resist the urge to brag about my own students on this blog. But I couldn't help it this week as Golden Gate [X]press, the award-winning student newspaper at San Francisco State University, launches its redesigned Web site.

The new site features a fresher, bolder look that highlights multimedia and breaking news. It also makes more space for photo galleries and blogs.

Though I've been advising [X]press for the past four years, I'm currently taking a semester off from the newspaper. Credit for the redesign goes to Online Adviser Jesse Garnier and Online Managing Editor Aaron Morrison, who spent countless hours on the project over the summer and through the early fall.

For comparison, you can see the old site here or check it out on the Wayback Machine.

Golden Gate [X]press is a finalist for both the Online and Newspaper Pacemakers, to be announced by Associated Collegiate Press on Sunday at the annual ACP/College Media Advisers National College Media Convention in Washington, D.C.

What do you think of the new Golden Gate [X]press site? Post a comment here.
