Students from any and every major are encouraged to join the Advance-Titan, the only student newspaper on the UWO campuses. Not only will you improve your writing skills, but you will also learn how to conduct interviews, take and edit photos, become proficient in Adobe Creative Suite, edit stories for AP Style and factual errors and grow connections within the campus and Fox Valley community.

The paper is made up of four sections:

  • News
  • Opinion
  • Arts and Culture
  • Sports

Students can dive into their specific interests. The A-T offers positions in writing (news, sports, opinion and arts and culture), advertising sales and design, graphic design (page design, illustrations, logos and infographics), photography (sports, news, features, etc.), cartoon drawing and copy editing. You can help weekly, bi-weekly or occasionally, depending on your schedule.

The Advance-Titan newspaper is produced weekly during the fall and spring semesters on Tuesdays (4 to 10 p.m. or later) and distributed on Thursdays. The print papers can be found around campus on kiosks and wire racks and are FREE for students, staff, faculty and the general public. Limited quantities are also located in Oshkosh businesses, such as the Oshkosh Public Library.

Each 5 p.m. on Tuesdays, the Advance-Titan holds planning/brainstorming meetings for the following week’s content. The meetings are held in Reeve 19, located in the union’s basement. Email atitan@uwosh.edu if you have any questions, or just stop by!

Students can also stay after the Tuesday meeting to see production in action, learning about newspaper design, helping copy edit stories, and much more.

Support student journalism and The Advance-Titan

The Advance-Titan is an independent student newspaper, meaning that the College of Letters & Science does not provide financial support for the paper. While we do receive Student Titan Employment Program (STEP) funds to pay a small salary to our editors (and that funding will be gone after the 2024-25 school year), much of our income is derived from advertising, which has dwindled since the pandemic. We usually also receive money through the Oshkosh Student Group’s SAC fees, but the amount can vary widely, making it difficult to budget from year to year.

So in these tight financial times, the Advance-Titan is looking for donations to help fund needed equipment, training opportunities and general expenses.

If you’d like to support student journalism, send a check made out to The Advance-Titan and mail it to AMP Department, Attn. Angelee Hammond, 800 Algoma Blvd., Oshkosh, WI 54901. If you want your donation spent on a specific item, please note that on the memo line.

If you can’t help financially at this time, please email A-T adviser Ben Birkinbine with any ideas how the student newspaper can become more financially self-sufficient. He can be reached at birkinbineb@uwosh.edu.

Thee entire Advance-Titan staff thanks you for your support!
