“Stay Connected”, the hashtag used across all social media platforms, in-print and online publications by the Schoolcraft Connection whose mission is to provide current and factual information to the campus community through News and Feature Stories, Campus Life Events, the latest in Arts and Entertainment and all things Schoolcraft Sports.
The Schoolcraft Connection is currently hiring for staff writers, photographers, layout artists and a Sports Editor. The staff positions receive $10 per published assignment, Editor positions receives $1,100 scholarship per semester.
We welcome all students enrolled in at least 6 credit hours to consider joining. Experience is preferred but not necessary and you don’t have to be a journalism major to be a part of our team. We also invite community members, faculty, staff and students to offer story ideas. Simply come by the Student Activities Office any day from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. to pick up an application and fill it out. Once the application is completed, you will be directed to make an appointment with Career Services to fill out paperwork. After you’ve successfully cleared the necessary steps, you are a part of the team.
The Schoolcraft Connection holds weekly staff meetings to discuss upcoming publications and story ideas. These meetings are held every Monday (unless otherwise noted) in Conference Room E of the Lower Waterman located in the VisTaTech Center. Meetings will last from 4 to 5 p.m. and walk-ins are welcome.
The Schoolcraft Connection teaches students to complete assignments under the pressure of a deadline. We also teach tools that are frequently used in the business world today, such as Trello and Gmail.
As always, don’t forget to follow the Schoolcraft Connection on social media including Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and YouTube to #StayConnected.
