POSITIONS: The following are the positions available at the Pioneer. We welcome all students to work with the newspaper on campus; however, editorial slots can ONLY be filled by students taking the class for credit. Please contact us if you are interested in joining the staff.


Photography Editor — The Photography Editor will work with Editor on photos needed for stories assigned. Photos may be borrowed on campus or assigned to students with cameras. The Pioneer has cameras available for checkout.

Writer — All students should be writing some copy for the paper. Students not holding title positions should carry a heavier writing load than those involved in mechanics, photography, web page etc.

Photographer — Students with cameras are encouraged to help with getting photos for the Pioneer. Shots should be high quality with strong contrast. We need more “people” and “action” pictures.

Videographer – Students interested in editing, producing, and filming videos should apply for this position. The site seeks to include more multimedia to provide a more interactive and in-depth view of campus events.

Podcast Specialist -Students with an interest in radio and podcasts are ideal for this position. The site is looking to expand on this and is looking for ambitious, creative minds to help direct productions.


Columnist —Columnist will work on one column per edition dealing with campus or college related issues. This piece should be in first person. We need a head shot (picture of your face) to run with the column.

Editorialist — This also involves one piece per issue. Although this piece is similar to the column, the editorial will involve some research and include “heavier” issues on campus.
