Join The Shield Media Team

Hey RU 📢! We are looking for writers, reporters, photographers, graphic designers, filmmakers and broadcasters to join our team! Shield is a great opportunity for RU students to experience creating content in a media organization. There are lots of ways to participate and the commitment is what you make it. Go to for more info.

What is Shield?

SHIELD Magazine, RU’s student magazine, written, edited, designed and photographed by students, a student-produced website with fresh content, photos and stories about RU

​SHIELDtv, student-produced videos geared to students and delivered via YouTube Shield Talks, student-produced podcasts delivered via SoundCloud

​Shield is written, designed and produced by students at Rochester University. The faculty in the Mass Communication Department train and oversee students in the preparation and production of these outlets.

​Working in these areas offers students the opportunity to use their creative talents in producing content while at the same time gaining valuable media experience. Mass Comm majors are required to work for SHIELD, and students from other majors are welcome to participate. Scholarships are available to students who work as editors and managers.
