Asbury University gives Journalism students many opportunities to hone their skills and become skilled at their chosen area of emphasis. We bring real life experience to the classroom and challenge our students to stretch themselves while working on print, online and broadcast assignments. Besides covering campus events, students also have the opportunity to be reporters and interviewers on television shows. Students even cover the Olympics. Journalism students travelled to the London, Sochi and Rio for the Olympics, covering stories for our local NBC affiliate, WLEX-TV. The students interviewed Olympic athletes and covered stories around the Games. Many unique opportunities are available at Asbury for journalism students working in print and video.
The Asbury student newspaper is The Collegian. Students manage, write and layout this publication. They also produce an occasional magazine.
The Collegian is also online. Students write, layout, and shoot video stories about news, sports and other events and people on campus. Students also produce videos for the website.
Journalism majors who are interested in pursuing a career in writing, reporting or producing broadcast news have that opportunity in the Communication Arts Center news bureau. Students can report news for WACW, the campus radio station or for online live television covereage. There are also a number of shows created by students interested in broadcast journalism including a local news show.
The Asbury University student newspaper, The Collegian, is an independent student publication produced through the Student Development Department.
“Asbury University’s commitment to encourage responsible exercise of academic skills and sound Christian judgment is expressed in the motto: Eruditio et Religio. The University endeavors to establish this commitment in all areas of university life. The general character of the student publications media must adhere to and reflect the spirit of this statement.”
Following the spirit of this statement found in the Student Publications Constitution, the Student Publications Committee – comprised of both faculty and students – presents this site to both fulfill this mission, and empower students to embody it.
