The Commuter Newspaper

The Commuter is an award-winning student-run newspaper. Our advisor, Rob Priewe, brings twenty years of experience working with the Corvallis Gazette-Times.

OUR MISSION
Our reporting represents the student body and faculty through relevant events, topical issues and extraordinary achievements of those on campus. It is our goal to be current on journalistic trends and creative with content and design as we train to transition into the industry.

The Commuter staff is diverse in interest: news reporters, photographers, fiction and opinion writers, poets and sports writers. Anyone is welcome to bring their particular talent to the paper.

Contact the Editor-in-Chief for interest in team involvement or suggestions.

TALENT GRANTS
Talent grants are available to those who contribute on a regular basis as a member of the staff. Available grant money varies per term and is dependent on the position at the paper and level of involvement. Specific questions should be directed to advisor Rob Priewe.
