Universe accepting Fall applications


    The Daily Universe is now accepting editorial staff applications for Fall Semester.

    Applicants must have a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 and a GPA of at least 3.0 for each semester of employment.

    Applicants must have completed Comms 311, 312 and 323 to qualify for editing positions; Comms 365R to qualify for photo positions; and Comms 429 to be opinion editor. Completion of Comms 398R, web publishing, is also highly desirable. Equivalent experience may be accepted in place of one or more of these classes.

    Those applying must be available to work from Aug. 24 to Dec. 12 and may not have any other paid employment. Undergraduate applicants must be registered for at least 8.5 credit hours and graduate students must be registered for at least two credit hours.

    Those hired as editors and associate editors will sign 20-hour contracts, and assistant editors will sign 15-hour contracts. Since news is not predictable, students will often work irregular hours.

    Students must be able to work quickly, organize, motivate and work well with others.

    Students must reapply every semester they seek continued employment.

    Applications are due in the Daily Universe front office, 538 ELWC, by 5 p.m. Friday.
