The Commuter is accepting applications for editor-in-chief as well as the other positions on staff, such as managing editor, photo editor, webmaster, and arts and entertainment editor.

Editor-in-chief applicants will be interviewed by the Student Publications Committee on Wednesday, May 18, beginning at 3:30 p.m.  The 10-member committee consists of LBCC students, faculty and staff and meets each spring to appoint a new Commuter editor-in-chief.

The duties of The Commuter's editor-in-chief include:
  • Appointing and managing the newspaper's staff of editors, reporters and photographers.
  • Coordinating the work of the staff, including assigning and editing stories and photos.
  • Leading staff meetings and other newspaper activities.
  • Representing the newspaper in the college community.
The next editor-in-chief, who will succeed current editor Justin Bolger, starts the position over the summer and continues through the 2011-12 school year.

The deadline to submit editor-in-chief applications is Monday, May 16.   

Applications for staff positions are available at The Commuter office in Forum 222, or from the newspaper’s adviser, Rob Priewe.  His office is in North Santiam Hall, room 114.
