Where’s The Daily Mustang?
The SMU Daily Mustang was a multi-platform news site produced by journalism students at Southern Methodist University from 2008-2011. Headquartered in the Division of Journalism’s convergence newsroom, the Mustang covered news, arts and sports on the Hilltop, winning several SPJ Mark of Excellence Awards and earning national recognition from the Center for Innovation in College Media for the Best Breaking News Package of 2009. The Mustang’s faculty adviser was Jake Batsell, who now serves in that same role for the new smudailycampus.com.
In August 2011, The Daily Campus and SMU’s Division of Journalism combined student media operations. The new smudailycampus.com is jointly operated out of the convergence newsroom in Umphrey Lee 284 and Student Media Company’s offices in Suite 314 of the Hughes-Trigg Student Center. Meanwhile, The Daily Mustang will stay online as an archival site.
