The Collegian

 

If you are looking to find your niche on campus, chances are very good that Student Life has an area of interest for you.

There are 30 clubs on campus.  The Collegian, the student newspaper, is one of those clubs.  “It’s just like working for a regular newspaper,” said Cliff Anthony proudly.  Anthony is an assistant professor of journalism at Lorain County Community College and faculty adviser of the Collegian.

The Collegian has 14 students on staff this semester.  “Our goal,” said Anthony, “is to disseminate news for the campus community and create an opportunity for students to learn journalism.”  LCCC students learn news gathering, writing, photo journalism, graphic layout and proofing.  “It is hands on training,’ said Anthony.  “There is no need for our students to re-train when they go out and apply for a job at a newspaper.”

Anthony is particularly proud of the page design software program used by the student staff.   It is InDesign CS-5.  “When it comes to technology,” boasts Anthony, “we are way ahead of the game.”

The Collegian, a bi-weekly, is in its 47th year of print.  If you are interested in working on the student staff, please contact the Collegian at 440-366-4037 or email at collegian@lorainccc.edu
