The Daily Pennsylvanian editorial departments work together to find and tell the most important stories on campus. Whether it's diving deep into an investigative story or capturing snapshots of people at the frontlines of Penn's history, the DP editorial side never stops making a difference.
As a member of the News Department, you will be able to involve yourself in many of the most pressing issues on campus and in the Philadelphia community. Writing for News allows you to enact change on campus, hold institutions accountable, and understand the intricacies of student life and University operations. In News, you will learn not only how to report and investigate stories relevant to Penn’s campus and students, but also many key skills transferable to other careers.
In 2023, the News Department extensively covered administrative turmoil, student activism, Philadelphia's mayoral election and campaign, and much more. By joining News, you’ll have the opportunity to develop expertise in and report directly on the subjects that most interest you.
Follow in the footsteps of DP News alumni who work for top publications and companies like the New York Times, The Washington Post, Forbes, Vox, MTV, Politico and The Wall Street Journal — in addition to various former DPers practicing law and working in business.
No journalistic experience required — only curiosity and dedication.
