About the Department

Student Publications is home to The All State student newspaper and other publications. The department produces the annual Student Handbook & Calendar in addition to the New Student Guide, provided to first-time students, family members and new University staff and faculty members.

The department is a part of the Division of Student Affairs. The Coordinator of Student Publications and Marketing oversees the department and also serves as an adviser to the student newspaper staff and supports and consults with other division departments on their publications.

There are between 50-60 students on the student newspaper staff who are of varying backgrounds, majors, interests and specialties. We engage students who are interested in writing, journalism, graphic design, photography, advertising and marketing, business, leadership and interested in being involved in a unique way on APSU's campus. Scholarships of varying amounts are available for enrolled students selected for staff positions on the paper.

The department also provides training, equipment, facilities and software student staff members need to produce the publications and develop skills during their collegiate careers.
