The Baylor Lariat

The Baylor Lariat is the campus newspaper of Baylor University. The newspaper is published Tuesday through Friday. All news-editorial majors must spend one semester in JOU 3375, a lab class in which students hone their writing skills as Lariat reporters. The remainder of the Lariat staff typically consists of sophomores, juniors and seniors who are selected each semester through an application and interview process by the news director, general manager and publications board.

The staff positions are considered work-study positions, are paid and are open to students of all majors. Some positions also include scholarships.

The Baylor Lariat is posted on the Internet each day and can be viewed at

Focus Magazine

Focus Magazine is a publication by the student publications department that is produced at the end of each semester. The theme, "A Perspective On The Waco Volunteer Community And The Issues That Affect Us," focuses on various aspects of local community involvement. The magazine is entirely produced by students of the Department of Journalism, Public Relations & New Media, including the articles, photography and design layout.
