New reporter...

Wednesday, January 25, 2012


Hey everyone! 

I have some exciting news to share (at least for me... I'm kind of a "nerd" about this sort of stuff)... anyway, I'm now officially a reporter on staff for the CU Independent!! At this point you are probably thinking, "Are you kidding me?! Newspapers are so 5 years ago..." Well, part of that is true. The CU Independent is the student-run newspaper on campus. There is one advisor, but all the editors, reporters, and content you read is made up by students. Contributing for the CU Independent is perfect for those of you interested in the journalism plus program. Writing for the paper helps you gain experience reporting, interviewing, writing stories, etc... but also gives you "clips" or publised pieces of work you do, which future journalistic employers ask for. It's ALL about gaining hands-on experience in order to prepare you for the future. I am posting the link to the CU Independent website. I should also mention the "paper" is only published online. Please add it to your "top sites" and "like" them on Facebook. Your readership allows us to keep writing and producing news! Also, if you plan on coming to CU you will want to read the paper in order to stay informed about everything that is happening on campus and in Boulder! Hopefully I can start sharing some of my stories with you once I start publishing them! For now, check out the paper and learn a little more about CU. :)
