Welcome to the Pittsburgh Standard SECTION descriptions!
Our NEWS section will be reaching all directions whether you live in the North, East, West, or South of campus. You will get the news through words and images. We believe pictures are worth a thousand words and can send a message across. The section will be developed by our news editor but you are invited to take part in the news section.
Our IMPRESSIONS section will give you the opportunity to express your impressions about things happening on campus and in the world. You will also get to read thought provoking and issues oriented opinions from non-religious perspectives. You can offer your impressions on any topic you choose. They do not have to necessarily be on issues but also on what is happening in your lives. Share it with others.
Our EXPRESSIONS section will give you the opportunity to express your expressions about things happening on campus and in the world from a religious perspective. You will be exposed to expressions that are not only thought provoking but sometimes expressions that ruffle feathers. You can offer your expressions on any topic you choose from a religious perspective.
Our HOTPRESSIONS section was born thanks to the Pitt News. In this section, we take the boldness to rebut articles written in the Pitt News regardless of what section they are from if we feel a rebuttal is necessary. Most of the rebuttals will be personally written by me as time permits. The general public, students, staff, and faculty are welcome to submit rebuttal responses to any of their articles.
A lot of people I talked to had issues with the Pitt News and the types of articles and stories that were being covered. Naturally, not everyone can agree with particular newspapers. To give an alternative perspective to the student body, the HOTPRESSIONS section was born.
Let me break the words down: HOT, PRESS, ION (S).
HOT – Passionate
ION- State or condition
It is called HOTPRESSIONS because topics and articles addressed here will be addressed in a passionate way just as journalists try to cover stories regardless of the state or condition they are faced with. There is no limit to the size you want to present as it can be broken down into parts.
Our SPORTS section will cover news and views regarding college athletes and the PROS. There will also be opportunities to predict games of the week.
Our ENTERTAINMENT section will cover stories from students who are involved in entertaining the masses. It will not be limited to campus alone. You will also get to read reviews on movies, books, songs and more.
Our FEATURES section will cover feature stories happening on campus through word and images. During the months of holidays or different anniversaries that we believe are pertinent, a special features section will be available.
Our FOOD section hopes to cover articles on foods that students loves the most. We hope to include surveys of students’ favorite foods and cafeteria menus.
Our TRAVEL section includes travel related articles and links.
Submission of articles:
All articles can be submitted to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
We are accepting submissions for various sections of the paper. If
there is something you want to write that may not fit those sections, go
ahead and write it and if there is a need we will add additional sections.
If any of you would like to do comics for the paper, we would love to have
your talent displayed too.
