There’s something for everyone at the Voice!
What follows is a non-exhaustive list of how you can get involved in the Voice. If you don’t know what section to join, read the magazine and browse our website and think about what you like.
The Voice attends the Council of Advisory Boards (CAB) Fair at the beginning of each semester, where new students have a chance to meet with editors and sign up for email lists for the sections. We’ll be doing a general information session this year on Sunday, September 11th, from 2-3:30 p.m. in the Healey Family Student Center’s Social Room.
We host all of our meetings in our office in Leavey Tower in Leavey 424, which is accessible by the elevators near GUAFSCU and Vital Vittles in Leavey Center. We also remain committed to making meetings accessible to students that cannot join in-person through Zoom. All of our meetings are open to all Georgetown students, and we encourage students of all different backgrounds to join us in telling the stories of Georgetown.
Tuesday at 8:30 p.m., Friday at 5:30 p.m.
The News section reports on the Georgetown campus, the neighborhood, and larger issues affecting students.

Our print edition and website require photos every week. Armed with press passes, photographers attend sporting events, plays held by the Department of Performing Arts, debates, and high-profile events that Georgetown University hosts every year to take pictures. In the past, our photographers have met Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and other VIPs at Gaston Hall, and have attended basketball games across the country.

The editorial board meets weekly to discuss campus, D.C., and national issues and collectively decides what position the Voice will take on the editorial page. The editorial board takes a progressive stance and potential editorial writers need to pass a litmus test.
