Who we are
The State News is brought to you through the hard work of six departments:
Advertising is responsible for generating $2 million annually for The State News. We're always looking for outgoing people who are self-motivated and have a strong desire to work.
The business office provides support to all the other departments. We're also responsible for all financial matters relating to the newspaper.
Creative Services is vital to the creation and structure of both the daily edition and statenews.com. Without this department the paper would never make it to circulation every day.
The distribution team is responsible for delivering The State News to MSU and the surrounding area.
At its core, The State News is about just that - news. Reporters, Designers, Editors, Photographers and Interns work together to bring relevant and objective information to the MSU community.
Web & Product Development
Product Development is responsible for the software infrastructure that runs The State News, statenews.com, and over a dozen other collegiate newspapers around the nation.
