The Pine Log Adviser
As the independent student newspaper of Stephen F. Austin State University, The Pine Log aims to fairly and accurately inform readers about what is happening on campus and in the surrounding community. The staff strives to offer a variety of perspectives, encouraging audience members to challenge themselves and their traditional ways of thinking. Staff members gain valuable experience in the field of mass media along with a foundation of career-ready skills needed for success after graduation.
The Pine Log is SFA’s award-winning, independent, free online newspaper. The student staff is committed to providing the campus community with fair and balanced coverage of university and local news and sports as well as informed opinion pieces, including columns and editorials.
During the fall and spring semesters, The Pine Log content is updated daily, and a newsletter is emailed to all enrolled students every week. During the summer, the staff produces an annual print Welcome Edition, which is mailed to the homes of all incoming first-year and transfer students. The Pine Log has the ability to print other special editions when needed.
The Pine Log student staff includes an editor-in-chief, editors, writers, photographers, videographers and illustrators. Applications for paid positions are accepted in late fall and late spring for the following semester’s staff. Interested students may apply online.
