Oklahoma City University’s Student Publications staff is responsible for the production and publishing of:
- the university’s student newspaper, The Campus, and
- the university’s student media website, MediaOCU
The purpose of Oklahoma City University’s Student Publications is to inform, entertain and serve the OCU community. The community includes the university’s student body, faculty, staff, trustees, alumni, and administrators.
Although Student Publications serve a broad community, the publications’ primary focus is Oklahoma City University’s student body. Student publications not only inform, entertain and serve the students, but also serve as the students’ printed voices. This is done while maintaining the university’s focus on a liberal arts education rooted in the United Methodist tradition of servant leadership.
The publications fulfill the above missions through accurate, ethical and objective reporting of campus- and community-related events. Coverage is facilitated by members of a student editorial board and overseen by a faculty adviser.
While fulfilling the above missions, the publications provide students with realistic, hands-on journalistic training by offering jobs including those related to reporting, production, design, sales, and management to students in any major.
