In case you don’t know, the blog is Barnard’s only student-run daily publication. We cover interests and opinions of very diverse body of Barnard students, which gives our staff a lot of freedom to write about whatever it is that they’re interested in. We’re a very new organization (started only a little over a year ago and fully recognized by SGA only this semester), which really means that our writers and new staff members have a chance to leave their mark on the blog and a SGA-recognized organization.
We’ve had a lot of people start their own columns about particular topics that interested them (for example, food, local music scenes around Columbia, popular music, wellness, politics, etc.), or create their own positions of benefit to the blog. From a journalistic perspective, we are often challenged with covering sensitive and current issues around Columbia’s campus and the city at large. Unlike other publications around campus, we are very open to covering events happening around the city in the right context. Also, if someone doesn’t know what they’d like to write about, we’re usually able to help our writers find a topic that they’d be interested in covering.
If you’re unable to make it, but would still like to get involved, please don’t hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org! And if you are ever moved to write about an issue that you are passionate about, feel free to email us about it. We often accept guest contributions to platform other people’s thoughts and opinions!
Thanks for your interest!
