In an attempt to better serve the university community, The Daily will take on an additional form: an ever-evolving, constantly updated news website. The site will debut May 31.
The new site will feature all of the content that previously appeared in the newsletter in an easy-to-navigate format—plus tons of all-new material.
All subscribers still will receive a daily enewsletter to their inboxes, but the enewsletter will appear in a more readable, abridged format that drives users to the website for more information.
The new format allows the university community to stay up to date on Case Western Reserve news throughout the day, as news happens. Read about some of the highlights of the new site, including a community message board.
