Believing in an alternative college culture: Become a 2012-2013 Chameleon national correspondent
They say college is the best time of a person’s life.
I believe college is the best time of a person’s life, because each person has an experience that’s unique to them.
That doesn’t mean everyone is going to be a college cheerleader or go drinking and partying every night.
What about the young student activists? What about the student progressives?
What about the hipsters? What about those who feel like they’re on the outside of the student life bubble looking in?
At the LUChameleon, we believe in the alternative culture of college campuses. Who says college is what everyone sees in the movies?
And who’s to say that we can’t share our alternative college experiences with the world?
“Mainstream” student media on your campus not cutting it for you?
We invite you to write for us. Tell us a story through a feature about the political climate on your campus. Or have an opinion about the cultural differences on your campuses? Why not share it?
We invite you to blog for us. Are you interested in the effects of global warming? Maybe you love music? Great! Blog about the environment! Or arts and culture!
We invite you to take photographs for us. Tell photo stories of your campus. Stage fashion photo shoots.
We invite you to send in your multimedia. Got a video production bug and you want to produce video works with different angles about alternative features? We’ll publish it.
We invite you to send your art and creative works to us. We’ll publish it! We encourage creative spirits, as well.
We, at the Chameleon, invite you to be one of our national correspondents. We invite you to be a part of our community and family, regardless of whether you attend Loyola University Chicago. Hell, we don’t even care if you go to school in Chicago.
We believe the topics we write about (arts and culture; LGBTQA and sexuality; feminism and gender; religion and spirituality; the environment; politics and social justice; and race, culture, and ethnicity) are applicable to every college campus across the country.
We also believe that in order to have perspectives of alternative culture on other campuses, we need the ACTUAL perspectives of students on the other campuses.
WE WANT YOU.
Interested in being a national correspondent next year? Awesome!
