Reporter is RIT’s student-run, 32 page, full color, weekly magazine. The content of the magazine is geared toward the RIT student body, focusing on a variety of different topics and issues that affect you, the reader. It is broken into six sections:
News — Covers current events on campus and in Rochester.
Leisure — The lighter side of campus life.
Features — In-depth expository articles on a variety of subjects relevant to members of the RIT community.
Sports — Coverage of sports on campus.
Views — Opinion pieces.
Online — An assortment of articles, videos, slideshows, and podcasts.
What to Look For
While article topics change from week to week, there are certain things you can look forward to in every magazine:
Word on the Street - Every week, we send a photographer out armed with a camera and a question. He or she takes pictures of random students and asks them the question. Their pictures and responses are published in the Views section.
RIT Rings - If you’ve got something to say, Rings is the place to say it. Rings allows you to leave a voicemail or send a text message and then have it published anonymously. Look for Rings in the Views section, near the end of the magazine.
RIT Forecast - Looking for something to do? The forecast is an excellent resource for events happening on and around RIT’s campus. Look for the forecast in the News section.
SG Update - Reporter does its best to keep tabs on those shadowy figures in Student Government (SG). Each week, Reporter sends a writer to the SG meeting and reports back to you, the reader. If you’re interested in what’s going on behind the scenes at RIT, check out the SG Update in the News section.
Reviews - In an effort to keep things simple, we take a firm stance on the products and services we review. We recommend to either DIG IT or SKIP IT. Look for Reviews in the Leisure section.
At Your Leisure - At some point in your college career, you’ll find yourself with nothing to do. Fear not, we’ve got you covered. At Your Leisure is filled with an interesting array of things to keep you occupied. Check here for a weekly sudoku, cartoon, and stream of facts.
