The Kaleidoscope is Kishwaukee College’s student run newspaper that has been published continuously since 1968. Since the Spring of 2015, the Kaleidoscope has been an exclusively online, digital publication.
The Kaleidoscope staff are students enrolled in COM 151, 152, or 153 (Publications Productions I, II, and III). No previous experience is necessary, and there are no prerequisites – any student interested in contributing to the Kaleidoscope is welcome. Students who work on the Kaleidoscope learn a wide variety of skills in the positions that are required in putting together a biweekly online publication: writer (news, feature, op-ed), editor, graphic design, and cartoonist.
Whether students are interested in pursuing journalism or mass communication as a career or just want to gain a diversity of experience that can better prepare them for any career, working on the Kaleidoscope is a great way to get involved and make a difference on campus by being the news-source and the voice of students on campus. Working to create an online publication allows students to gain excellent communication skills, work as a member of a team, meet deadlines, learn to delegate and exercise leadership.
