- The student newspaper has returned! We have a new name,
The Blue Devil Report, and new leadership, but we remain committed to
delivering important news to Merced College students and staff. Our goal
is to keep the campus community informed and up to date on the latest
happenings at our college.
Now, a little background for those who are unaware: our
predecessor, The Blue Devil’s Advocate, was run by journalism classes until
2008, when our journalism professor retired and journalism courses were
discontinued. This means that in restarting our paper, it has to function in
a different way, namely as a club, the Journalism Club, instead of a course.
That means the paper will be run on a volunteer basis by participating club
members. We hope to publish one more issue this spring, and then, starting
fall, we plan to publish monthly. But, we need the help of the wonderful
Merced College student body. This is a newspaper for the students, by the
students, and we encourage interested students to volunteer their time for
this worthy cause. This is no longer for a specific class, so anyone
interested may join the club. If you are interested, please contact the
newspaper office 386-6655 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our newsroom is in
Art-3, and we hold weekly club meetings on Wednesdays at noon. Anyone who
wants to submit material may email us electronic copy as well at email@example.com.
Enjoy the first of what we hope to be many issues to come,
