The Arizona Daily Wildcat is the student-run umbrella news organization which supports delivering news, information and entertainment to campus and beyond through print, online, mobile app, Facebook and Twitter. The 100+ student employees of the Arizona Daily Wildcat strive to be the primary source of information for, by and about the University of Arizona community, and contribute to campus life by providing a voice for students. The print Wildcat is available at 140 rack locations on campus and at local businesses near UA campus.
The Daily Wildcat, UATV-3 and KAMP Student Radio offer unparalleled leadership opportunities. Students across all media are positioned to have their voice – and the voices of the students they represent – amplified. Student leaders make decisions small and large, exercise responsibility on a daily basis, and learn to manage their peers. As the editorially-independent voice of the UA student body, they’re also charged with agenda setting on issues of importance to the campus community.
Arizona Student Media is the on-campus “home” each year to more than 200 passionate, engaged students – each gaining real-world, on-the-job experience as they hone their skills in news and sports reporting, marketing, photography, graphic design, accounting, broadcast production, and more. Their responsibility: to produce daily, unfettered, creative, editorially-independent news, advertising and broadcast content.
Serving the UA Community
Arizona Student Media was there when the ‘Cats won basketball’s national championship, and when Tucson’s streetcar took its first ride. Its students were there when UA scientists reached for Mars, and when the eyes of a nation turned to Tucson, amid a most inexplicable tragedy. With a UA community of more than 45,000 students and greater than 16,000 faculty and staff – let alone countless alumni, visitors and community supporters – Student Media continues to evolve to inform its audiences in new ways, via a multitude of platforms.
