Students from any and every major are encouraged to join the Advance-Titan, the only student newspaper on the UWO campuses. Not only will writing skills improve, but students can learn how to interview, how to edit and how to grow connections within the campus and Fox Valley community.
The paper is made up of four sections:
- Arts and Entertainment
Students can dive into their specific interests. The A-T also has advertising, graphic design, cartoon drawing and copy editing sections, where students can work with section editors to put out a great issue every week.
The A-T is a weekly paper during the fall and spring semesters that is produced on Tuesdays (4:00 to 10:00 p.m.) and published for Thursdays. They can be found around campus on wire racks and are FREE for students, staff, faculty and the general public.
Brainstorming story idea meetings for Fall 2021 are 5:15 p.m. every Wednesday (Reeve 19).
Students can also stop by on Tuesdays after 4 p.m. to see production in action!
Support student journalism and The Advance-Titan
The Advance-Titan is an independent student newspaper, meaning that the College of Letters and Science does not provide financial support for the paper. While we do receive STEP funds to pay a small salary to our editors, much of our income is derived from advertising, which has dwindled since the pandemic. We usually also receive money through the Oshkosh Student Association’s SEG fees, but the amount can vary widely, making it difficult to budget from year to year.
So in these tight financial times, the Advance-Titan is looking for donations to help fund needed equipment and training opportunities.
For instance, due to a recent donation from an Advance-Titan alumnus, we were able to buy a new Nikon camera, replacing one that was nearly 15 years old and no longer worked. But we’d like to add a new telephoto lens and be able to set up our own studio complete with green screen and lights in the future since we are doing more multimedia work.
We’d also like students to attend occasional conferences, from national to regional or virtual. From the past, we know students learn and get excited about opportunities at these learning sessions, taking home ideas that make the paper better. And with a very young staff, these learning opportunities become more important.
So, if you’d like to support student journalism, send a check made out to The Advance-Titan, and mail it to The Department of Journalism, Attn. Cindy Schultz, 800 Algoma Blvd., Oshkosh, WI 54901. If you want your donation spent on a specific item, please note that on the memo line.
And if you can’t help financially at this time, please email A-T adviser Barbara Benish with any ideas how the student newspaper can become more financially self-sufficient. She can be reached at email@example.com. In advance, the entire Advance-Titan staff thanks you for your support.
