University of Washington Bothell’s Husky Herald newspaper, Clamor literary journal and UWave radio are all produced and edited by students with faculty advice and distributed free to the campus community.
Clamor is UW Bothell’s annual literary and arts journal, representing the best creative practices in literary, visual and media arts from across our campus.
“It’s one of the best learning experiences I’ve ever had,” said Acacia Thorng, a student contributor for Clamor and media and communications studies student (’17).
Clamor gives students the opportunity to be published, which can be a huge milestone for an up and coming artist, said Thorng.
“I learned about what it takes to publish something in print and how to collaborate with people,” Thorng said.
UWave Radio is the campus-based community station, a hub for underrepresented voices and a catalyst for social justice. It is led by students who are committed to building community and creating opportunities for professional development.
"UWave Radio gives students on campus the chance to work in a live studio. There's no better learning than actually getting hands-on experience,” said Douglas Rowe, member of UWave Radio and media and communications studies student (’17).
All of the shows are live online.
“We're not on the radio waves, but we are on the Internet. It's kind of cool because people can listen to us, even if they're out of the state,” said Rowe.
Husky Herald is produced online and printed once or twice a quarter. Dedicated to the student body, it provides stories that capture UW Bothell’s vibrant community and character.
"We're all about innovation. If you have an idea about something, do not be afraid to ask to write a story about it,” said Jalen Howard, a designated officer of Husky Herald and media and communications studies student (’17).
