Bulletin goes private, sort of

By Elias Tezapsidis

The twice-weekly Macalester Bulletin announcements are no longer all accessible through Macalester’s website-now, some are solely available through 1600grand.

Doug Stone, director of college relations, said that the modification has been made to keep some information that is mainly relevant to students, staff and faculty, from the general public. Stone said, however, that the switch is not a way to preserve any “secrets” within the Macalester community.

The majority of Bulletin news is still available to the general public. “99 percent of the information is available for everyone,” Stone said. The information that is transparent to all but the Macalester community would be of a more “private” nature, such as admission information or other budgetary information.
