After being named the “Best High School Newspaper” in the state from the Arizona Newspaper Association, we here at The Roundup opened the new semester with the overhaul of our website at http://roundup.brophyprep.org and a number of upcoming plans are on the way.

The site was redesigned to show a variety of articles from each section, including a new features box that allows five different articles to be featured on the website’s front page.

Also new is the revamped music section, rechristened “The Bronco Beat” and kicking off the semester with the launch of The Roundup’s new music podcast.

The redesign also opens up new avenues for showing digital content, with the capability to add boxes for featured videos and slideshows.

The videos will come in the form the The Roundup’s “Soul of Brophy” multimedia project, which will resume capturing snippets of Brophy life this spring semester.

Last semester, the project claimed the title of “Honorable Mention” from the National Scholastic Press Association and a “Superior” title from the Arizona Newspaper Association.

“Soul of Brophy” will continue to feature regularly released multimedia features documenting different aspects of Brophy’s “soul.”

To coincide with the launch of the redesign, The Roundup is also launching a campus-wide ad campaign with light-hearted posters featuring each member of the staff editorial board.
