The Northwestern News, the campus newspaper, is recognized as one of the state's best. Individual students and staff are routinely honored in competition through the Oklahoma Collegiate Press Association. The Northwestern News encourages all students, beginning at entry-level, to jump right in and become part of the staff bringing the news to the Northwestern community and the area it serves. Many large universities do not have the flexibility to offer involvement to every mass communications student, especially at entry-level.
At Northwestern, the small class size offers every student hands-on experience immediately.
Students enrolled in News Reporting automatically become staff members of the campus newspaper and cover various beats on a weekly basis.
Anyone interested in subscribing to the Northwestern News for one school year should send their address and a check for $12 to: Northwestern News Subscriptions, Northwestern Oklahoma State University, 709 Oklahoma Blvd., Alva, OK 73717. Subscriptions per semester are $6.
Contact members of the news staff at firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com or call (580) 327-8479.

Students wishing to be members of the News staff, which is responsible for doing the layout, design and additional reporting, are encouraged to apply for positions on the staff. The Northwestern News is produced by the students with the advisement of Melanie Wilderman and is published every Thursday that school is in session. Newspapers are distributed across campus and also sent to the Woodward and Enid campuses. Several newspapers are mailed to subscribers and other interested parties, so the newspaper is highly visible. Students have access to IBM-compatible computers using such programs as Adobe InDesign, Corel Draw, Word, Photoshop, and Illustrator. Be an active part of campus by getting involved with the Northwestern News.
