Student Media

Student Media at UC Santa Cruz include print publications and broadcast organizations. Every year, hundreds of students enrich their educational experience through internships, academic credit, fellowships, and employment opportunities with media organizations.

The award-winning student newspaper of record, City on a Hill Press, covers campus and local news, sports, music, and offers art reviews and commentary. Fish Rap Live! provides an alternative forum for free expression of ideas, humorous coverage of local and campus events, and personal journalism. TWANAS, the Communities of Color and Native American Students Press Collective, publishes a news magazine that broadens awareness of perspectives of color in the campus community. Other campus magazines include the critical film journal, EyeCandy; Leviathan Jewish Journal; Scientific Slug, which blends coverage of research on campus with science-focused art and poetry; Fruitcake, which looks at life through the lens of graphics and cartoons; the philosophy journal, Kalopsia; and Gaia, which focuses on environmental issues. Annual literary journals include Chinquapin, Red Wheelbarrow, ALAY, and Matchbox.

Artistic, narrative, experimental, documentary, news, and public-service film and video are produced by broadcast organizations, including the Film Production Coalition, On the Spot, Slugworks Animation, Banana Slug Network, and others. Students from all disciplines are encouraged to participate.
