The Gallery

The Gallery is an annual publication designed and produced by a team of dedicated students in the Department of Art at Rowan University. Showcasing some of the best work created by art majors, the publication is the end-product of two semesters worth of creative collaboration. The Gallery team sees the publication though the entire creative process, from concept development to production, determining its form, design, organization, and content. Artwork submissions are juried by the students team too, and the selected works represent a diverse collection of some of the best work created by Rowan art majors over the course of the academic year.

TRAC

The Rowan Arts Collective strives to give the fine arts at Rowan more visibility, as well as encouraging students of all majors to become involved with and experience many different forms of art. We love collaborating with other clubs and organizations on events, or art installations on campus, as well as the greater Glassboro area.

Communication Studies

The Communication Studies is a University-chartered club that allows for various opportunities in personal, professional, and civic growth. The club is open to all students and meets on a regular basis (typically two meetings per month). Members participate in activities that support the community within and around Rowan University. The club provides resources necessary for students to build long-lasting relationships with their peers and professors, so members can succeed professionally and academically. The club offers a central forum for sharing information related to the major, minor, and the study of communication. It supports community among students and faculty, and it demonstrates service and leadership. Students participate in many different activities within the organization. Past meetings and events have focused on professional development, popular culture panels, resume workshops, internship and advising workshops, community involvement, volunteer work, game nights, alumni events and much more.

The Whit

Since 1938, The Whit has served as Rowan University’s exclusive campus newspaper. This student-run weekly includes a staff of eleven editors as well as a dozen or more reporters who cover everything happening in and around the university, including news, features, art & entertainment, and athletics. The Whit is always looking for new student reporters and editors who are looking to engage with their university in unique ways while also gaining real-world experience as 21st century journalists, which not only means writing weekly news articles but also taking photos and producing engaging pieces of audio and video journalism for The Whit’s website. Student editors and reporters meet every Wednesday afternoon to compile that week’s issue in a fun, inclusive, and engaging environment, and the work they do plays a vital role in helping them get internships and jobs in the field of journalism. If you’re interested in being a part of The Whit this year, please email editor-in-chief Tara Lonsdorf at editor@thewhitonline.com.

Rowan TV Network

The Rowan Television Network (RTN) is one of the biggest clubs on campus. We're entirely student-run and produce various types of television programming, including sports and special events. We also run our own studio shows that include a talk show, game show our own late night show and others! 

We're also a learning club; the equipment you use here is very similar if not identical to what you'll see on a professional level. Here at RTN, you can get a leg up on the competition by getting hands-on training with equipment the professionals use. From in-studio shows, to various on-location shoots on campus, you'll know how we gear up for every shoot and get your hands on plenty of different equipment. 

Feel free to drop in on any meeting and see what we have going on. Everyone, no matter their experience level, is welcome!

The Rowan Television Network is a service organization for Rowan University.

Cinema Club

Cinema Workshop is Rowan University's student filmmaking club, and has been for the past 42 years. This club offers students the opportunity to work on film, video and multimedia projects outside of the classroom experience. Students take skills learned in production classes and apply them to creative work either more personal or larger in scope than what is possible within the confines of a 15 week course of study. After a peer-oriented pitch and approval process, Cinema Workshop provides grants in the form of goods and services through production, culminating in a year-end screening of often award-winning films and videos.

In addition to production, Cinema Workshop actively promotes workshops in which students learn about everything from how to get an internship to how to set a light stand. Each week the executive board, with the help of teachers or professionals, teaches a new lesson that can help the members in their own cinematic endeavors.

Cinema Workshop also provides a link to former members, many of whom are working professionals in the field of film and video production.

The club is advised by Professor Sean O'Leary.

Would you like to join Cinema Workshop but don't know how to get involved? Come to our meetings at 9:30 p.m. every Thursday in Bozorth Hall, room 112.

Avant Literary Magazine

Avant Magazine is Rowan University’s oldest creative outlet. Avant has weekly meetings, Tuesdays at 8 p.m. in the Victoria building, room 200, at the intersection of Mick Drive and Victoria Street. At the meetings, submissions are anonymously reviewed by the editorial staff and democratically voted on for acceptance or resubmission.

Rowan students can submit their work year-round. We accept stories up to 2,500 words in length, and poems up to a comparable size. We also accept photography and artwork.

All submissions are read anonymously to provide a no-bias atmosphere when critiquing and accepting a work. No work is ever “rejected”: instead, the author of the work is asked to resubmit. All pieces are works in progress; if a work seems ready for publication, we vote as an editorial staff and select it.

Writing Arts Club

The Rowan University Writing Arts Club (RUWAC) is a community of writers who create and maintain a collaborative environment that thrives on diverse writerly needs, interests, and modes of engagement. RUWAC’s collaborative environment provides members—from any discipline—with opportunities to develop their writerly craft, to share their work with fellow writers who respect the processes inherent to all forms of writing, and to serve within the larger Rowan community.

Sports Communication and Media

The Sports Communication and Media Club is for students within the Sports Communication and Media major, minor, as well as CUG, but also for students interested in sports. It provides opportunities for networking with professionals in various fields like journalism, radio, media relations, production, etc.

Each Monday the club – along with the Center for Sports Communication and Social Impact – hosts Pizza with the Pros, where students can learn from individuals within the sports industry. Previous guests have included Merrill Reese, prominent sports journalists from the Philadelphia area, and Rowan graduates working all over the country.

There will also be a bigger trip each semester (one to Philadelphia and the other to New York), where students can learn from those in the business. Our students have also attended the NCAA Forum on Inclusion, Madison Square Garden for the 2k Classic basketball tournament, and the Phillies Business of Sports Media and Marketing night.
