<i>Outlook</i> to get new look, name
Ohio University news is taking a new direction thanks to survey results
Mar 15, 2010
From staff reports
Outlook, the OHIO community's leading source for news about the university, will be heading in a new direction this spring, based on the results of last spring's Outlook readership survey.
Outlook will be renamed Ohio University Compass this spring. The name refers to the publication's newly established mission: to guide the university community and to help readers find direction.
The community spoke and University Communications and Marketing (UCM) listened. Coming this spring, anticipate seeing the results of this survey in action.
According to the survey, conducted by the Voinovich School on behalf of UCM, 94 percent of respondents read Outlook. Seventy-six percent of respondents said they read it once a week or more, indicating that Outlook is a frequent source for many people for university news.
The Ohio University Compass remodel aims to make the university news Web site more reader-friendly and navigable. Though the differences will be appreciable, UCM will still be providing the same high quality of news and information that students, faculty, staff and community members have come to depend on.
