Take a look at what goes on in the newsroom and how The Eagle newspaper comes to life

If you’re interested in mass media and communication, the journalism program at NTCC is a great opportunity to learn hands on experience.

Since 1989, The Eagle, has been the student-led source of news for Northeast Texas Community College. Over the years, The Eagle newspaper staff has chronicled the history of the campus including the college’s 2010 Silver Celebration, Dr. Maya Angelou’s visit to campus, a 2.5 million dollar project for a sustainable agriculture facility, and a 1996 Junior College World Series championship.

Today, The Eagle, along with the journalism program, continues to carry on that legacy by providing students with the tools and opportunities for individual career plans. Today’s world is changing, and the way society views and digests news is evolving as well. With the help of The Eagle, students will learn about careers in print media, news writing, layout and design, photojournalism, and digital media.

In addition to the print newspaper, the journalism department is also home to Lagniappe, our literary magazine, and The Eagle online.
