Tailoring content to our readers

If you flip through an issue of Silver Chips from the past couple years, youíll find one topic suspiciously missing: what Blazers do once they graduate Blair.

Pro/Con: Can Internet activism replace traditional forms of activism?

Pro/Con: Should clubs at Blair receive funding from the school?

MCPS lacks food options

For most Blazers, the lunch line is safe, inviting and full of options. However for me, that line is perilous and fraught with danger.

The high cost of lower tuition

With the national average in student loan debt quickly outpacing the national average in credit card debt, it is clear that the high cost of college is not a problem that the country can afford to ignore.

At Blair, print media stays strong

Is print media dying? Itís a question that professional publications have struggled with over the past decade. In 2009, the Baltimore Examiner went all-online, and newspapers like the New York Times continue to debate how much of their content should be made free to the public online.

Raising the bar for Spanish page

It is our goal as a newspaper to reach out and include as many people in our community as possible. Blair has a significant Hispanic population, including many who feel more comfortable reading in Spanish. Silver Chips has included a Spanish page in every issue since for the past ten years because we believe that it is important for Silver Chips to be accessible to everyone.
