Indiana University Journalism

IU Journalism has a history of award-winning student media. Students get hands-on experience at IU's daily newspaper, the Indiana Daily Student, and its Web and magazine products; the Arbutus yearbook; IU Student Television; and News Forum, a weekly news program that airs on the local PBS affiliate. A student-run communications agency lets public relations and advertising students practice their skills with clients who include local community organizations. 

Indiana Daily Student

The nationally-acclaimed Indiana Daily Student is a financially and editorially independent newspaper. Since its founding in 1867, it has been a hub of deadline and news activity. The IDS staff chronicles both campus and community affairs while competing with regional media for breaking news. The newspaper offers students professional opportunities in reporting, management, sales, advertising, special projects, human resources and design. Related publications, including the IDS Weekend, INside Magazine and the paper’s website, provide valuable learning experiences in graphics, Web design and new media.

The Arbutus Yearbook

For more than 110 years, the Arbutus yearbook has captured the history of the state’s largest public university from a student perspective, covering personal stories, news events, athletics and campus controversies. The Arbutus offers diverse professional opportunities for students, from the editor in chief to business manager. The yearbook is a special showcase for photographers, with writing, design and peer management critical to the production of the 500-page publication. The Columbia Scholastic Press Association and the Associated Collegiate Press have awarded the Arbutus numerous honors for overall excellence.
