The School of Communication, in partnership with Trib Total Media, operates the Point Park News Service. The news service is built into an advanced-level class with 10 to 15 dedicated reporters and offers the opportunity for students to have their work published. The class meets once a week, and students are expected to write five stories per semester.
Participating in the Point Park News Service helps prepare
School of Communication students for their careers.

The Trib pays students a stringer fee for every published article. Stories appear under students’ bylines with a tagline identifying the source as the Point Park News Service.
