Another week, another Voiceopen house! Tomorrow at 4:30 p.m. in Leavey 424, the Voice will be having its final open house of the semester. Our editors will be there to talk about our various sections. We’ll have pizza and various soft drinks.
If you’re interested in writing, graphic design, photography, blogging, business, or raillery, come by tomorrow afternoon. As an example of how seamlessly you can become a member of the Voice, our newest writer came to our open house last week and tomorrow, he will be publishing a review of the Spagnuolo Gallery’s latest exhibition on Vox.
Whether you want to be casually involved as a designer, writer or photographer, or eventually become one of our dedicated editors and feature writers, the Voice has a place for you.
Tomorrow and next Friday, the Voice will be holding open houses at 4:30 p.m. in Leavey 424 with free food for all! If you have any passing interest in, well, anything really, we encourage you to come by and chat with our editors, including yours truly. We’re looking for new writers, photographers, designers, copy editors, and business staff.
Whether you’re interesting in writing, photography, blogging, graphic design, marketing, crosswords or raillery, you will find a home at the Voice, which has been the Hilltop’s award-winning campus newsmagazine since 1969.
Most Voice staffers have gone on to successfully attain honest employment after graduating Georgetown, and others have become lawyers or journalists.
So come up to the office tomorrow or next Friday, and who knows, maybe two weeks from now you’ll be drawing the next Page 13 comic, interviewing campus leaders or publishing a post on Vox. At the very least, you would’ve enjoyed some free food.
Whether you signed up at SAC fair, just wandered to our table to grab a cookie, or have entirely ignored all of our recruitment strategies so far, Vox still wants you! We’re looking for writers interested in just about anything, from campus news to leisurely stuff to weekly features.
If you’re interested in blogging, or in writing for our newsmagazine, The Georgetown Voice, or if you just want more free food on the Voice‘s dollar, come to our Open House this Friday, September 9, at 6:00 p.m. in the Voice office, Leavy 413. You’ll be able to meet all of the section editors, sign up for email lists, and learn everything about what it means to be part of the Voice.
Like what you’ve seen from the Voice so far this semester? Want to get involved but not sure how? You’re in luck! We’re going to be having a second open house of the year this Friday, Oct. 1 from 6pm to 7pm in our office, Leavey 413.
The open house is a great place to talk to current staffers, get a feel for what working on a student paper is like, and get some free pizza. We always need more talented reporters, writers, bloggers, photographers, graphic designers, artists, techies, copy editors, ad sellers, and crossword writers. So if you’ve got a skill that you think the Voice could put to good use, please come by the open house!
If you can’t make it to the open house but are still interested in the Voice, feel free to shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by our office any Wednesday evening and see what our production nights are like!

If there’s one thing every college student loves, it’s free food. Each week, Vox will highlight a few events to help you survive without a meal plan. Send tips and suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Goldman will discuss how his life and his passion for cake making—all while creating one of the unique cakes that made his bakery, Charm City Cakes, famous.
The tickets cost five dollars online, or eight dollars at the door—and yes, we know that we broke our own rule about the food being free. However, this is probably the only time you can get a cake like this for cheap, since cakes regularly cost upwards of $1,000.
Vox was kicked off the Voice squad after failing to shave his sideburns.
Just a day after the Voice vanquished the Hoya in a nail-biter of a softball game, Georgetown’s rival newspapers met once again to do battle over the annual Bunn Student Journalism Awards. And The Voice managed to secure another victory, winning 10 awards to the Hoya‘s 8—including 5 of the 6 first place awards—and sweeping the features category.
The winning articles and photos are all really quality work, so if you’re looking to procrastinate a bit on your studying (and really, who isn’t?) take some time to check them out after the jump!

Senator Nick Troiano (COL ’11) shot back at the critics of GUSA’s funding board reform at yesterday’s meeting, delivering an eight-minute rebuttal to a recent Voice editorial, which advocated against the reform. In Troiano’s words, he wanted to “set the record straight.” He described the editorial’s claim that reform could “threaten the funding sources for clubs and sports teams” as “unfounded, incendiary remarks, that I believe are flat-out irresponsible for a campus media outlet to state.”
Troiano cited a 2006 referendum that passed with 91 percent of the vote to give GUSA the power to appropriate Student Association funds as evidence that the student population was in support of the reform. He said that “91 percent of students disagree with the editorial board” on the board’s assertion that giving the Senate absolute control over the student activities fee threatens student clubs and student life on campus.
