Technical difficulties present the past and prepare for the future – The Washburn Review
It is still time to reflect on the previous year. Kaw Directories are delivered and ready for distribution.
After a crazy year of social distancing and Zoom calls, the 2020-2021 Kaw Yearbook helps bring together the bright days of a gloomy year.
With an appropriate theme of technical difficulty, Washburn can be seen as he stopped for the year and loaded up a new screen.
Student media produces three publications, the Bod Magazine, the Kaw Yearbook and the Washburn Review. Although last year the teams were small, each persevered and released a considerable amount of content.
“I feel like because of all the difficulties we had, we had to cover something really special. We had to cover the story as it unfolded. We got to see Washburn University in the event of a pandemic. There will never be another time exactly like this, so it’s really cool to be able to do that, ”said Anna-Marie Lauppe, editor-in-chief of the 2020-2021 yearbook.
With a team of three, Lauppe confided in his colleagues to help him complete the directory. With a writer, a designer, herself and the help of other student media staff, Lauppe was able to complete her yearbook at the end of the summer.
The thematic yearbook helped captivate how strange the year had been and what Washburn did to adjust.
“There is a common theme throughout the book and I hope everyone can enjoy it,” said Cody Dannar, lead designer of the yearbook.
The new issue of the Kaw Yearbook is available free to students.
The most convenient place to retrieve this interpretation of the directory is located just outside the student media office. YYears from previous years are also available here.
This year there have been a few additions to the directory team. As a graduate student, Lauppe needed a sidekick to help her through this year.
I was hired to help Lauppe with the 2021-2022 yearbook as co-editor. This year, we will be creating a directory together.
While we have tried to keep up with current events and have had the help of Jules Miller and Gavyn Pyle, we have also tried to publish our latest directory.
Not only do we need the help of our staff to create a great yearbook for the 2021-2022 school year, but we also need the help of students and faculty.
We have an upcoming event where everyone can have their photo in the directory. On Monday, November 8, the directory team will be taking photos of students, faculty and organizations at the Bradbury Thompson Alumni Center from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The yearbook team wants students and others to reflect on the year and prepare for the next.
