There are lots of options if you want to get involved in media on the IU campus, and we want you to make the most of your time. Just a few of the many student groups came to talk to the Media Living Learning Community and gave us some quick tips to get involved.
Arbutus. The yearbook is more than just trying to find the hottest guys on campus. Feature stories, photo essays and alternative story formats are just a few types of work that go into putting an entire book together. The staff needs reporters, editors, photographers and designers. Plus, if you report three or more times for the staff, you get a free book! Email Hayleigh Elmore at firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.
WIUX. Everyone who listens to 99.1 FM in his car or online gets to hear your voice. If you don’t want to play music or host a talk show, you can do production, programming, PR, business or engineering. WUIX is the only radio station that covers the Little 500 race, so what they broadcast is then picked up in Indianapolis and broadcast there. If that doesn’t sell you, those who work with entertainment get to talk to Aaron Carter face-to-face when he comes to IU this fall. It’s okay. We are totally fangirling too. Go to WUIX.org to learn more.
IDS. The daily student-run newspaper does everything from writing to building their own website. The sky is the limit from opinion to illustrations to design to copy editing to reporting and writing. Plus, you get paid $10 a story/page design/photo. It doesn’t sound like much, but, we promise, it adds up. Go to idsnews.com/jobs for the application.
IUSTV. News, sports and entertainment on channel two and online. Those interested in broadcast can be an anchor, run the camera or act like a producer. There is a show every Monday called Hoosier News Source and every other Wednesday called What’s Up Weekly. Who doesn’t want to see their face on TV every week? Go to iustv.com for more information.
