Student Media

UNIVERSITY STUDENT MEDIA BOARD

It is through involvement with Student Media that students implement and fine tune skills gained in the classroom. Students with any academic major can participate in Student Media.

PLU’s Student Media is advised by the University Student Media Board, which consists of representatives from each Student Media group, a faculty representative, and two ASPLU appointed student representatives. A representative from Student Life, along with Student Media group advisers, attend meetings as nonvoting members. The Media Board meets once a month to discuss policy, budgeting, media events and collaborative projects.
