Want a career in national or international magazines? Butler has a high-gloss full-color student magazine, The Grizzly, that comes out three times during the academic year. You will focus on all aspects of magazine publishing - writing, photography, management, layout/design, estimating costs, and budgeting. The Grizzly allows students to examine all aspects of campus life in more depth than allowed by a weekly newspaper.
Activity scholarships, which cover tuition (equivalent to that paid by Kansas in-county residents) and books, are available each semester for The Grizzly staff. You don’t need to major in Mass Communications to be on staff or to apply for a scholarship.
Members of The Grizzly staff have claimed Journalist of the Year award for nine of the past ten years from the Kansas Associated Collegiate Press, in addition to numerous other awards. Former staff members have moved on to the work force, commercial publications, and four-year schools.
