As for the article types, for Third Quarter everyone needs to have written a news, editorial, feature, and two of your choice. Regarding the choice articles, write to your strengths or interests, or what the flow of news and events dictates. Work with the editors to see what needs to be covered, or propose your own ideas.

The article requirements remain the same. Please consult either the First or Second Quarter Journalism Article Expectations handouts for the info. Don't forget photos!
