By working with these media, students gain valuable co-curricular experience in sales, marketing, journalism, broadcasting, production, design, multimedia communication, leadership and management. NC State offers six media outlets staffed by students and supported in part by self-generated non-fee revenue, as well as a student-staffed Business and Marketing office which coordinates advertising sales, sponsorships and full-service marketing opportunities for all six media. Many staff positions are paid. Visit the department website.
