Opinion Editor

Is there something (or some things) about this campus that frustrates you to no end? Do you feel like standing on a (metaphorical) platform and proclaiming: “Hey, all of us should care!!!” Well, look no further—our Opinion section lets you do just that … just a little more eloquently, using pointed articles.

As opinion editor, you’ll edit every opinion piece published by The Triton, including op-eds, submissions, and editorials. If this sounds interesting, fill out our application below or at this link.

The Conch Editor

The Conch is The Triton’s newly revived satire section. Articles can employ a variety of design principles or gimmicks but should always have a point. These can include faux news reports, tongue-in-cheek op-eds, persona authors, and Buzzfeed-style lists.

If you have experience writing satire, or are interested in trying it out, fill out our application below or at this link.
