The Spartan Echo is accepting applications now for all editor positions.  Editors will serve during the fall 2015 semester and may receive a performance grant for their service.  Amounts vary by position.  Some work—done from home—will be necessary during the summer break to prepare for the fall semester.  Please see the Spartan Echo staff page at for more information.
