Still looking for a club to join?

Do you like updating others about current events and engaging in discussion?

Do you have the potential to make social media posts a lot less awkward than the editor-in-chief does? Well... You're in luck!

Due to our wonderful social media director being whisked away by further education (😭), we have a spot open for a new social media director.

The Commuter welcomes anybody interested with the promise of free pizza and silly conversation.

If social media doesn't interest you, we also welcome all:

-writers
-photographers
-proofreaders
-comic artists
-designers
-office visits
-letters to the editor
-opinions
-story ideas
-good vibes

We hope to see you at Spartan Fest! If you can't make it and have an interest in the newspaper, feel free to contact Kristen at [email protected] or join our meetings on Tuesday and Thursday at 11 in CC140!

Thank you and good luck in your studies!

Spartan fest is tomorrow and it's going to be far out.
