Description: The Student Newspaper is open to all types of articles coming from the Jacobs Community members.
Ideally, the articles should be about something related to Jacobs that one cannot find somewhere else (e.g. official newsletters). Hence, preference will be given to this type of articles.
After submission, the Editorial Team will decide on whether to send back the article for significant changes or to slightly edit the content.
