The Daily Texan is holding summer staff tryouts now through June 19. For any passion you might have, we have a department to help you explore and develop—regardless of your major or previous experience. We encourage you to join us, beginning by filling out this interest form.
Working in News will bring you to the front lines of history, our Sports and Life & Arts departments will give you front row seats to local events and writing in Science & Tech positions you at the cutting-edge of research and development. For those who prefer to show rather than tell, we need photographers, videographers and comics artists to enrich the words we put on each page. Copy editors and designers creatively bring all of this content together to make a finished newspaper.
And of course, there is the Opinion department. Our page hosts personal narratives, offers expert advice and advocates for change. Tasked with representing the student voice, we want to hear from you. Even if writing here full-time is not a possibility, submitted op-eds and letters to the editor are encouraged.
The Daily Texan is a storied tradition. In our 117-year history, we have won more awards than any other student newspaper in the country. Our alumni have won 19 Pulitzer Prizes and graced the pages of many of the most respected publications in the world. We hope that you try out. You could be next.
