College paper adds business section

January 22, 2010

The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater student newspaper, The Royal Purple, has added a business section, according to a brief story on its Web site.

Editor Sarah Kloepping writes, “Last semester, the student-run newspaper tested a sample section to gain reader feedback about making it a permanent edition.

“‘There was an overwhelmingly positive response from students,’ Managing Editor Tyler Lamb said. ‘The business section will allow the Royal Purple to reach an untapped area of campus as we attempt to cover a wider variety of student life.’

“Business Editor Grant Nelson said he hopes the readers find the sections interesting and useful.

“‘The business section will be a great addition to the Royal Purple, because the business school makes up an important part of UW-Whitewater,’ he said. ‘With so many student organizations in the College of Business and Economics it can be difficult to keep up with all of their activities, and this section will provide coverage of the events that often times go unnoticed around campus.'”
