About The Campus Lantern
Established in 1945, The Campus Lantern is the student run newspaper for Eastern Connecticut State University. We've been releasing issues for years, both in print and online. Unlike other campuses, ECSU's newspaper is entirely student run. All the articles are written by our lovely staff or any contributing students.
The Campus Lantern has four sections: News, Opinion, Arts & Entertainment, and Sports. We also have an Expressions section for creative writing, poetry, art, photography, and anything else that doesn't quite fit in our other sections.
Our staff meetings are every Tuesday from 5:30-6:00 pm, and we have biweekly general meetings from 6:00-6:30 pm. Anyone can join us, with no writing experience required - we want to get students involved in journalism, and the first step is to tackle the events happening in today's world. This is covered in both our General Body meetings and writing workshops.
If you want to find us, go to the Student Government Association Suite, on the bottom floor of the Student Center. In our office, we discuss articles, have food, and talk about ideas for the club such as apparel or events.
If you would like to have your piece published in the paper or online here (on Friday's), please submit the form below. Make sure to attach your file as a Word Document or PDF! Submissions (excluding Expressions, which can be up to 1,000) should be between 350 and 750 words, with no specific formatting requirements. The editors will take care of the rest!
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or stop by our office!
