Spartan Logo Change

Posted by laneblackmer on February 2, 2010

From the classic and friendly Sparty to the edgy and angry Spartan; MSU students and fans alike seem to be coming to a general consensus on the new Spartan logo, and that consensus is negative.

As part of a new marking plan sponsored by Nike, MSU has changed its logo. Athletic Director, Mark Hollis, said this is only part of the plan.

Opposers of the change have taken a new age approach to protest by creating several anti-new logo Facebook groups. One such group is called “The Old Spartan Logo,” and boasts a picture of the old Spartan logo aside the new one with a line through it. As of Monday, there were 56,771 members of the group.

One reason Spartans both like and dislike the logo is because of corporate sponsorship.

The rest of the marketing plan will be revealed sometime in the spring.

Lanie Blackmer-Bio

Posted by laneblackmer on January 24, 2010

After two consecutive summers at camp MIPA, two MIPA day camps, three years of high school newspaper and two years of high school yearbook, it is only seems natural that I find myself here at MSU majoring in journalism.

I’m finishing out my junior year with an interest in convergence journalism, meaning I want to create videos for the internet while still being able to satisfy my addiction to writing. (Death of the newspaper, HA! More like birth of the multimedia newspaper!)

I’ve been writing for Spartanedge, an alternative media web site at MSU, for two years. This year, as the managing editor, my responsibilities include things like managing the twitter and Facebook accounts, editing articles, teaching staff how to do multimedia related reporting and helping editor-in-chief Alisha Green with any task. Check out my most recent article! Also, don’t forget to follow me on twitter.

In my life separate from school, I love tennis and running. I am actually running a 5k in Okemos February 7. Stevensville, Michigan is where I grew up. From living there my entire life, I will never be able to tolerate living anywhere that is void of some sort of shoreline.

The most prominent personality trait I have is passion driven determinism. My best friend of eight years constantly tells me that I get way more worked up about things than most people.

Other than that, enjoy me biography video, which is lacking creativity, but is moderately engaging!
