By joining News, you will learn not only how to report and investigate stories relevant to Penn’s campus and students, but also the intricacies of student life and University operations. Reporters uncover news important to the Penn community by illuminating student stories and holding the institutions and our University accountable. Whether it’s breaking news or investigative journalism, your storytelling has the ability to enact real change on campus.

The Real-Time Desk is also housed in the News department, and is for those who want to report on breaking news and write aggregated news posts with a lesser time commitment.

Follow in the footsteps of DP News alumni who work for publications like The New York Times, Forbes, and The Washington Post, to name a few. No journalistic experience required — only curiosity and dedication.

We’re a family, above all else, and we have an amazing time going on field trips, throwing watch parties, and really engaging with different parts of the Penn community.

So if you like watching sports, if you like talking to interesting people, if you like to travel, or if you like to spend all your spare time on the intramural circuit, DP Sports is totally the place for you. No experience required, just an interest in sports and desire to learn. Student-athletes are welcome to apply!

The Daily Pennsylvanian is looking for creative, engaging, and dedicated writers to pen weekly or biweekly opinion columns for Penn's independent student newspaper. The best columnists do more than tell stories or argue their opinions — they identify topics relevant to the Penn community.

Your writing and reporting skills will improve tremendously, and you will have the rare opportunity to reach thousands of people with every column you write.

We are also looking for talented artists to create funny, insightful, and poignant cartoons. Being an opinion artist requires time and dedication, as well as the ability to make a point using few words.
