It’s important to know what’s going on in and around your home away from home.

Iowa State offers a wide array of student-run media sources for students to stay informed and be entertained.

Iowa State Daily

The Daily is an independent, student-run newspaper available in print at stands throughout campus and online at iowastatedaily.com. It also has a mobile app available on both the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. Founded in 1890, the newspaper prints Monday through Friday and has a daily print circulation of 12,500.

The Daily employs more than 200 students throughout the year including editorial, advertising and design staff. Students interested in working at the Daily can apply online at www.iowastatedaily.com/apply/.

“The Daily provides students with real-world experience right on campus. Learning by doing is, in my opinion, the most effective way to gain skills. And that’s exactly what the Daily does,” said Danielle Ferguson, the Daily’s editor-in-chief. “The Iowa State Daily Media Group is preparing students to enter the changing world of journalism by becoming a digital newsroom and encouraging students to try new methods of telling the community’s stories.”  

Please direct all questions related to editorial positions to [email protected] or 515-294-4120. Questions related to design, advertising or creative services positions may be sent to [email protected] or 515-294-4120.


ISUtv is the only student-run cable station on campus. Programming can be seen on cable channel 18 or at www.jlmc.iastate.edu/greenlee-tv

ISU students are encouraged to create, produce and participate in shows that air on the channel. ISUtv producers and staff train all new employees, so no experience is necessary.

ISUtv faculty adviser Raluca Cozma said students are welcome to pitch program ideas and produce their own shows.

“Working with ISUtv will help you develop important soft skills — communication, networking, teamwork, confidence, self-presentation, empathy — in addition to visual storytelling, so joining the team will benefit you even if you are not interested in a career in broadcast journalism,” Cozma said.

ISUtv is funded in part by the ISU Student Government. If you’d like to advertise your local business, or if you’re a student interested in working at ISUtv, contact Raluca Cozma at [email protected].
