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. If you missed CAB Fair, don’t worry, the Voice doesn’t require an application (read more about why here), which means the best way to get involved is to show up to meetings! You can also fill out this form, which will help connect you with different section editors.
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 p.m., Friday at 5:30 p.m.
The News section reports on the Georgetown campus, the neighborhood, and larger issues affecting students.
Sports provides coverage of various men and women’s athletic teams, including basketball, lacrosse, baseball, football, hockey, and soccer, on our website and provides live tweets on Hoyas games at @GUVoiceSports.
Saturday at 1-3 p.m. (come anytime in this period)
The Features section covers long form investigative stories with a focus on news in Georgetown and D.C. With news commentaries, Features collaborates with Voices to offer deeply researched perspectives with an opinion angle. Features shares meetings with Voices and News, but also offers brainstorming drop-in meetings called “features incubators” on Saturdays.
Thursday at 7:30 p.m.
Learn critical management, financial, and advertising skills while being part of The Georgetown Voice community—an experience unlike any other.
All creatives are welcome in the design section as we create the graphics and layouts of our print edition every two weeks, along with the graphics for online articles published on the Voice website. Whether you have extensive design experience or none at all, join us in making a creative community at Georgetown and telling stories through art.
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.
