Welcome to the Division of Student Affairs Georgia State University Student Media!
Student media participants at Georgia State learn by doing, whether it is writing, editing, producing, DJing or otherwise selecting outside content. You will find that Georgia State Student Media is highly reflective of the students’ vision and participation. Our goals are to reflect the state of the Georgia State campus, to provide quality content to the campus and city community, and to prepare students for a wide range of media presentation in their post-graduate career. Whether you are a student looking to be involved or someone wanting to learn more about how our student media can inform and entertain, we hope this will be a useful reference. We look forward to hearing from you!
The Georgia State Student Media Department is currently comprised of four groups: GSTV, New South, The Signal, and WRAS-Atlanta. These groups provide students with opportunities in radio, video, print journalism, and literature.
New South is Georgia State University’s student edited literary journal. It adheres to the standards of peer reviewed literature journals across the United States. The organization also stages a number of readings throughout the school year both on and off campus. More information on workshops can be found at the New South website (see Directory under Contact Us). In 2011, the organization launched Underground, featuring content exclusively from the GSU student body. The Signal is the student run newspaper of Georgia State University. It features newswriting from Georgia State students with letters from the campus and city community as well as occasional contributions from campus writers across the country. The Signal has received the Georgia College Press Association General Excellence award in four of the past five years.
WRAS-Atlanta is Georgia State University’s student-run radio station, broadcasting online 24/7 and from 7 p.m. – 5 a.m. at 100,000 watts on 88.5 FM. WRAS has been selected by Creative Loafing staff and readers as the best overall radio station in Atlanta on multiple occasions. All WRAS DJs are Georgia State students, and Georgia State University sports are covered by Alumni employee Dave Cohen. GSTV is the student-run television station of Georgia State University, which broadcasts to university housing on Channel 91 & online. GSTV presents student-produced news and variety programming as well as coverage of on-campus events.
