Reporter is RIT’s weekly student publication. Every week, Reporter’s entirely student-run staff delivers 32 pages of news, features, entertainment, editorial, and sports content to the RIT community. The publication is broken down into six sections:
News: Covers current events on campus and within the greater Rochester area using a straight-up reporting style.
Leisure: Tackles the lighter side of the campus and community, highlighting fun, entertainment and literary journalism.
Features: Offers an in-depth look into a subject or event relevant to the members of the RIT or Rochester community.
Sports: Presents game recaps and athlete profiles in addition to covering special sports events, policy changes and other special-interest issues.
Views: Provides an outlet for writers to present a compelling view, voice their opinions, and spark a dialogue on campus.
Online: Houses articles similar to all previous sections as well as videos, slideshows, audio, polls, and other interactive material.
The content and theme of the magazine may change every week, but there are a few things that Reporter runs regularly.
If you’re looking to see what the greater Rochester area has to offer or are just looking for something to do, Reporter has you covered. Forecast is an excellent resource for events occurring on- and off-campus.
SG Update, Academic Senate and Staff Council
Wondering what’s going down behind the scenes at RIT’s bodies? Each week, Reporter sends a staff member to these regular meetings and writes a report about what they’ve discovered.
At Your Leisure
If you’re looking for some quick, easy-to-read entertainment, AYL has just what you need to keep you preoccupied during those dull classroom moments. (See page 15.)
Word on the Street
Reader input is very important at Reporter and we’ll do just about anything to get it. Every week, we send out a photographer armed with a question. The mission? See what the RIT community has to say. (See page 28.)
If you’ve got something to say but no one to listen, Rings can provide you with the appropriate venue. No matter how ridiculous or nonsensical, you can get your word out. Leave voicemails or send text messages to 585.672.4340. (See page 31.)
Reporter is completely student-staffed, and we’re always looking for new ways for students to contribute. Writers, illustrators and photographers are always welcome to try for a spot on our staff. The more input and participation we can get from you, the more able we are to cater to your needs. If you want to get involved or just want to see how the magazine operates, stop by one of our weekly staff meetings on Fridays at 5 p.m. in the basement of the Student Alumni Union’s Campus Center, room A-730.
