The Sandbox is for all SPC students, including you. We’re committed to developing a wide range of coverage on a variety of topics. If you’re passionate about something, whether it be on-campus or off, something about which you think students need to hear, or would just enjoy, drop us a line and pitch your idea. Is your band playing a show? Did you get pics at an epic protest? We’re looking for news reporters, art critics, book reviewers, students interested in campus events, webcomics, humour articles, and, especially, great ideas you have we haven’t even thought of yet. This is your Sandbox, so come on in. You will be paid in fame, glory, and a chance to be a little more like April O’Neil than you were before.
NOTE: The Sandbox does not accept advertising solicitations at this time.
