Our 2018-19 Editorial Board is made up of 23 students who work as editors and staff writers. Each member contributes ideas, writing, and edits to every issue. Those on staff also attend weekly meetings, where we work to plan upcoming issues, sharpen our journalistic skills, and train new writers. While the editorial board is the main driving force of each issue, we also open up the option of writing for The Centipede to boding journalists in the community who hope to share their opinion or practice their journalism skills.
Although we are extremely lucky to be guided and helped by our wonderful faculty advisor, history department member Ed Rafferty, The Centipede is a student-run organization that distinctly reflects the CA student body. Members of the staff are involved in every stage of the paper’s production, pitching article ideas, interviewing sources, photographing events, and perfecting the layout.
The Centipede is still evolving. Recently, we established a new science and technology section, introduced the article "Room for Discussion" where students can showcase different opinions about a rotating topic, and launched a website where you can stay-up-to-date. However, our print edition remains the newspaper’s flagship. Free copies of each issue are distributed to students and faculty, but you can sign up to receive our monthly paper in the mail by emailing Nancy Howard (email@example.com) in the Student Life Office. We hope that these editions keep you informed about not only what is occurring on campus but also about what CA students are discussing with friends in the dining hall and debating in classrooms.
