Newspaper

The Chanticleer

JSU's award-winning student newspaper, The Chanticleer, offers students the opportunity to gain hands-on experience. Students serve as Editor-in-Chief, section editors, photographers, etc. Not only do staff members get reporting and editing experience, but the paper's desktop publishing system is a great way to prepare for a field that is computer-dependent. Paid positions include the Editor-in-Chief, and three other editors or layout personnel.
