The Clarion Call. This is a student-run newspaper that is a recognized student organization. The newspaper publishes weekly on Thursdays throughout the school year, beginning with the second week of classes. The Call functions much like a regular newspaper with editorial, advertising, and circulation departments. Staff and editors assign, write, and photograph the content of the paper during the week. It is assembled and produced on Wednesdays. The Call includes both the printed publication and an online component The Clarion Call. The Clarion Call has an 11-member editorial board and a staff of writers, photographers, advertising, and circulation representatives and online bloggers and video-graphers. The student organization is not limited to Communication majors; it is open to any students on campus. Editorial Board meetings are Thursday nights but students interested in joining can stop by the Call office on Wednesday nights at 6 p.m.

WCUC-FM 91.7. Our radio station is a non-commercial, student-operated radio station that offers all that a commercial radio station can offer in terms of opportunities for students. Our university radio station operates through a Scott System program that allows us to be on the air 24/7. DJ training every semester gives students the expertise they need to host their own shows. The radio station provides local, regional and national news, covers many university and community events and travels to sports events with several university sports teams. Anyone can join and be a part of the organization. Since non-commercial stations cannot sell advertising, WCUC receives support in the form of underwriting through area businesses. While students can join at anytime, the beginning of the semester is better as students are trained for the equipment.
