Student Newspaper and Media
The Fox Journal
The campus student newspaper, The Fox Journal, offers a challenge to anyone interested in journalism or a related field. Staff members gain valuable experience in reporting, editing, photography, graphic design, and advertising sales. Students may also earn academic credit for their work (if CTA 104 is taken concurrently). Energetic new members are always welcome. Advisor: Loren Snyder, (920) 832-2677.
University Studios is a student club that teaches students the fundamental principles of broadcasting. For credit or on a volunteer basis, students can get involved in closed-circuit campus radio or in video/television production or both! Previous experience is not needed. New members are always welcome. Advisor: Tom Frantz, (920) 832-2719.
Students can learn the technical skills required to be a disc jockey by doing their own radio shows. Students involved can elect to earn academic credit by enrolling in CTA 105, Applied Journalism Radio.
University Studios TV

Some videos are broadcast to the community on cable, some videos are used on campus for other purposes, and some are purely experimental. All work is done using professional quality video production equipment. Students involved can elect to receive academic credit for their work by enrolling in CTA 106, Applied Journalism TV.
