New opportunities in STARS provide students chance to build experience in interest areas

This coming fall, students will have the chance to get involved with STARS in a whole new way.  Positions for a Student Videographer (paid), numerous Student Journalists, and Comic Artists for the monthly newsletter will all be open for application.

These opportunities offer you the chance to gain valuable experience in the area you are studying, or provide an avenue to explore new areas.  Either way, they are great resume builders for undergraduate students.  Below are job descriptions for these positions:

STARS is interested in a few good men and women who would like to gain some writing experience.
