For the first time since it was launched in February 2010, the Bowdoin Daily Sun has a new look. Of course, looks aren’t everything—the BDS also has a number of new and different features. Beginning today, readers can choose from eight categories at the top of the page to catch up on past columns by President Barry Mills, Whispering Pines by John Cross ’76, and other stories about alumni, faculty, students, sports, and arts & culture. Readers can also see the most popular posts from the past 60 days and link directly to Bowdoin’s social media channels, Bowdoin Obituaries, Bowdoin News, and Bowdoin Talks—our new home for archived lectures, presentations and performances. The Polar Bear scoreboard and schedule is back in the right-hand column, and even the weather shows up bright and colorful in the bottom right-hand corner (no matter what it’s doing outside!). Perhaps most important, the new, more responsive BDS works even better with tablets, smart phones, and other mobile devices. So, take the new BDS for a spin, and let us know what you think.
