Ever read something you don’t agree with in the Iowa State Daily?
Of course you have, and that’s great! Public discourse is a goal of every newspaper and the Iowa State Daily is no exception. We want our material to engage you, and we want you to engage us back. Write a letter to the editor! Or better yet, join the Iowa State Daily Editorial Board.
As an editorial board, we prefer to write about the happenings of Iowa State as well as events that may impact the lives of Iowa State students. We’ve written about topics ranging from Avengers: Endgame spoilers to Steve King. Sometimes, we write about controversial things, and sometimes, our view of the situation may not align with yours.
Echo chambers do nothing to further discourse on a particular subject matter. Diversity of opinion is what allows us to have those real conversations on the editorial board. We’re looking for individuals who can articulate their opinion in a civil, concise way.
As a member of the editorial board, you will be expected to attend our weekly meetings where we decide the topic of each editorial and our stance on the issue. As impassioned as you may feel about a particular issue, you will be expected to support your opinion with facts and a logical train of reasoning.
If you’re someone who likes to engage in honest, deliberate conversation about the issues affecting Iowa State and its students, consider joining the Iowa State Daily Editorial Board. All are welcome to apply!
