After our first issue, we asked our readers to respond to a survey about their experience with FORUM. The feedback was both useful and enjoyable. Below are some of the responses from our readers, edited for length. Thank you to everyone who participated in the survey. If you haven’t responded to our survey yet, we would love to hear from you HERE!
I like the idea of a paper that I can suggest content for and possibly write for in the future.” –Chemical Biosciences major
“I like that you delve deeply into a topic with each issue and give different perspectives on that one subject. Often complicated topics just get a surface treatment, so I think this is a good way to get people to see the depth and impact of a particular idea.” –OU parent
“In general, just report and talk about real things that matter. The other publication on campus will make a story out of the smallest of things. I prefer this much more, and it’s serious, REAL issues.” –Political Science major
“I’m a queer individual and I feel that there aren’t enough articles telling our story in The Daily.” –Astrophysics major
“Continue to cover issues that help better the campus. That’s what I’d like to be involved with.” –OU faculty member
“I would like to hear about issues that center around the students. Also, I think it would be valuable to provide events that would be interesting for students to attend, such as the Human Trafficking Symposium.” –Christians on Campus member
“Consider the student perspective on these issues. That’s what truly makes a student publication more widely read!” –Biology major
Keep going!” –OU faculty member
Thank you for some great feedback. Keep it coming!
