The long and short of it

Check out the latest project, 100 Percent SJSU, by Kyle Hansen, the Spartan Daily‘s online editor, and friends. It’s a graphic look at diversity and ethnicity at SJSU…and it’s also a good example of a short-form story alternative (see p. 128-129 in Harrower text) that condenses and graphically displays data to make it more reader friendly.

Click on the icons on the campus map to see pie charts showing the ethnic breakdown of students in each college. Note: in case you’re wondering, the School of Journalism and Mass Communications is part of SJSU’s College of Applied Sciences and Arts (CASA), represented by the medical icon.
