On Saturday March 2, Stephen F. Austin played Northwestern State University for first place in the Southland Conference. I was assigned to take photos for The Daily Sentinel and decided to use photos I didn’t get to use in the paper, for this assignment. I really enjoy shooting basketball, it is fun being able to be front and center of the action. I took a large variety of shots from action to features and came up with some pretty decent photos. It was better than ever at this particular game because the score was so close down to the last minute and we came out with a win, 64-63.

The Pine Log is a SFA student-run newspaper that runs twice a week for the SFA community’s observation and they are hiring for the spring semester.
This newspaper consists of several positions all held by students that work in and out of the office to create a paper that grabs attention campus wide.
“We aim to keep students informed about world issues, campus events, and to also allow students make their voices heard. We want to give students ‘real world’ experiences where they will leave college with knowledge of what it is like to work for a newspaper,” said Hannah Cole, Editor.
Each editor are in charge of laying out their specific page. For example, the Entertainment Editor is expected to pull stories and photos over events that are seen as entertainment, and lay them out in a style that will grab the attention of readers.
The same goes for other page editors. Everything included on their page is in relation to the specific focus of the page. This includes opinions editor, sports editor, and editor who often puts together page one.
Working for the Pine Log:
Working for the Pine Log gives students the opportunity to venture out and gain experience with what they are interested in. For example; interviewing, writing, editing, taking photos, page layout, are all different skill sets that students can learn depending on the job they apply for and get offered.
“As sports editor, facilitating writers so that the various sports at SFA are covered is always an exciting challenge. Many times, I will cover the games myself, but because we have so many successful sports on campus, it allows a tremendous opportunity for writers to be featured in the Pine Log,” Jordan Boyd, junior, said.
College is a place where professors prepare students for jobs post graduation. The Pine Log presents opportunity for students who are in the Mass Communication field particularly, with opportunity to build their resume.
“I love working for the Pine Log. It’s something extra I have done for three years. I’ve always loved writing and reading. I am glad to have some background working at a publication. I think any number of diverse jobs i can have, will make me a more rounded person. The skills I’ve learned at the Pine Log can transfer to a lot of careers,” said Jessica Gilligan, Managing Editor.
Students who work for the paper will have hard copies of what they write, layout, and/or take photos of. This will allow them to build their portfolio on top of building their resume.
“Working for the Pine Log is definitely a learning experience. You learn a lot about working with a deadline and I get to work with a fun group of people. I also enjoy getting to learn a lot more about the newspaper world,” Copy Editor Jessica Layfield said.

For students who are unsure of how they will like working for the paper, they can write for the Pine Log as contributing writers. Meaning, they will not get paid, but they will have their writing published.
