With over four decades of fostering passionate writers, dedicated photographers, and creative graphic designers, The Avion Newspaper has been supporting creative minds since 1969. Our team of volunteer staff reporters, photographers, and graphic designers are what make The Avion Newspaper what it is today.
Great content is what The Avion Newspaper strives for in each issue we produce. This is why our staff has access to a lot events and activities not many collegiate news-sources have.
Thanks to our long-standing relationship with NASA and the United States Air Force, our reporters and photographers have the opportunity to cover nearly all of the rocket launches that take place from Cape Canaveral. In addition to viewing rocket launches from the causeway located inside of Cape Canaveral, photographers have the ability to place cameras out on the launch pad to get some excellent photos.
Writers, on the other hand, have the opportunity to interview important guest speakers and personnel that visit Embry-Riddle’s Daytona Beach campus. Individuals like Apollo 13 astronaut Fred Haze and world-famous comedian Gabriel Iglesias are just some of the people our staff got meet within the past two years.
The Avion Newspaper is always looking for new members who want to become a part of this long-standing tradition. Many of our photographers and writers became professionals and got their start with us. The best part is that if you can’t write, take pictures, or use graphic design software, we can teach you.
Does all of this sound good to you? Then get involved today! Join us by doing one of the following:
Come to our weekly meeting.
Held every Tuesday night at 7 p.m. in the Endeavor Conference Room (UC, 2nd floor), The Avion’s General Meeting is the perfect opportunity to come in and find out what is on the story list for the week. Here you will meet our executive members as well as our general members. After the meeting you will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with each of the executive members and ask any questions you may have.
Come by our office.
If you can’t make it to our weekly meeting, feel free to drop by our office (SC, 110) any time. The office is typically staffed by an executive board member anytime between the hours of 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Often times we are there even during the off hours, so, drop by and have a chat with one of us. We will be happy to explain the ins and outs of the organization as well as how to best get involved.
