We are looking for students interested in seeing their work published in both the print and online editions. To join, contact Faculty Adviser Lee Ann Nelson ( or stop by LRC 221 between 1:00-2:00 PM Monday, Wednesday, or Friday.

Along with writers, anyone interested in photography, videography, editing, or graphic design may join.  Because this is on a voluntary basis, you can do as much, or as little work, as you want.

No previous experience or prerequisite class is necessary to join. However, COM 102-Mass Communications, Journalism 120, and Video Production 260/290 are all strongly encouraged if you are interested in pursuing Mass Communications further.
