Student reading The Whit

The Whit

Since 1938, The Whit has served as Rowan University's exculsive campus newspaper. The 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, inlcuding 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.

Cinema Workshop student

Cinema Workshop

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.
