About

The Observer is Central Washington University’s student-run newspaper, printing weekly and publishing online daily. The Observer has been publishing since December 1916. To view previously published articles, check out the archives section of our website.

  • The Observer is run through the class COM 468. Once you enroll in that class you will be placed as either a scene, sports, or news reporter. You also have the option of being a photographer or do copy. As a reporter, you will be required to write a story every week that includes having three sources you interviewed. As a photographer, you will be assigned select photos you need to take for the reporter’s stories. As a copy desk staff, you will work with the copy desk chief to review and edit stories. If you’re interested in being on staff and getting paid, take COM 468 first and then you will be eligible to apply for a staff position and sign up for COM 478.
