Senior journalism students at Drake University launched their capstone website, Urban Plains, last Thursday. The team celebrated its public debut by showing off stories from the best barbecue and cocktails in the Midwest to rising stars in the music world, proving that the content on the site is as diverse as the Hawkeye state itself.
Urban Plains is a student-run, online publication focusing on arts, culture and social issues in the Midwest. Each semester, seniors in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication create stories, market events and publicize the site on social media. If you missed the launch party this time around, you can catch it next semester under a new leadership team. You can also follow the current site at urban-plains.com.
