Magazine & Press
The Washington College media office wants the world to know about Washington College and all the newsworthy things our faculty and students are up to. How do we tell the WC story?
We help journalists who have questions, need expert opinion and analysis, or want access to people and places on campus.
We send out news releases about upcoming events and notable achievements.
We look for WC stories to pitch to the regional and national media.
We promote faculty and staff experts to reporters, editors, producers and bloggers so they can be quoted in news stories, interviewed on public affairs shows and published on opinion pages.
We manage crisis communications and send out emergency alert information when the need arises.
Finally, when our professors, students, alums and other members of the WC family make the news, we share it with the greater College community with links to the articles or podcasts.
