The Observer (Com 468) is a two credit class that meets from 4-4:50 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays in Bouillon 144. The Observer has news, scene and sports reporters, as well as photographers, a copy desk and an online section.

Working in one of the four sections will help those who want a paid editorial position in the future. The class helps reporters learn journalism and helps improve writing skills, which will help students get clips and build their resumes. Photographers learn about the rule-of-thirds, among other photo lessons, and copy desk—the unsung heroes of the paper—help ensure The Observer doesn’t print any inaccurate information. Our online team is growing, just as our web-presence is.

For those interested in any of those positions, please enroll in the class or email Also email if you are interested in freelancing.
