Hello, Panthers!

We are the Greenville University Papyrus, and we would like to take a moment to introduce our incredible staff which hopes to bring you content focused on what matters throughout the year.

Publication of the Papyrus would not be possible without a few very important people. Erin Lobner and Maggie Shoepke are the Co-Editors In Chief, and Paige Lunde is the Digital Editor. Nathan Craig is the Facebook Live Director and Kalynn Pierce is the Social Media Director.

The goal for the Papyrus is to:

Share diverse perspectives, promote the community-centeredness of Greenville, and tackle relevant topics,” according to Lobner. “We want to engage our audience through our articles, podcasts, and social media.”

Facebook Live is a new feature included in the publication this year to live-stream campus events. This aspect of the newspaper is led by Nathan Craig. Other videographers include Mary Friedman, Coleton Gensler, Jesse Getz, Caleb Miles, Allyson Mitchell and Kyle Spriggs.

Podcasts have also come to be an important aspect of the Papyrus in recent years. This year, there are three major podcast series to keep your eyes out for. Marideth Tate and Bradley Stubbs take on the life of student-athletes in “Athlete vs. World,” produced by Matthew Stoddard. Jake Vanwey and Greg Franchomme discuss all things football in “J & G Sports Podcasting,” produced by Quinten Brown. Logan Murphy, Joe Wood, and Issac Akers tackle sports’ hottest topics in “Murph’s Pitch.”
