Who We Are
In the fall of 2013, The Crow's Nest was unveiled as the College of Coastal Georgia's revamped student newspaper. With the overarching goal of meeting the standards and expectations of the modern college student, The Crow's Nest offers a wide variety of avenues to connect with students. In addition to our printed newspaper, we have integrated our content with this interactive website that also serves as a platform for our regular blogs, video-casts and podcasts. Additionally, we utilize social media tools such as Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter to accommodate today's tech-reliant students.
If you'd like to connect with us or have comments/questions about any of our products, please visit our contact page.
