How to contribute to the Gazette

For 114 years, the Gazette has been keeping a watchful eye on our campus.

We investigate important student issues like mental health, food insecurity and provincial policies to keep students informed. And we explore topics like the latest fads, technology and sports to keep our campus entertained.

This place has been a training ground for Western students who’ve gone on to professional careers like journalism, public relations, communications, and even photography.

Volunteering is simple. We are open Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. We are working remotely this term, so please call (519) 661-3580 or email to tell us what you’re passionate about. Writing? Photographing? Filming? Designing? We’ll get you started.
