PA Student Editors' Interest Group (SEIG)

Who We Are
A critical part of the Pennsylvania NewsMedia Association Foundation’s (Foundation) mission is reaching out to college and high school journalists and their advisers. The future of the industry relies heavily on how young people view newspapers and the journalism career path. In an effort to reach future journalists and readers, and to show our support for college newspapers, the Foundation and the Pennsylvania Society of News Editors (PSNE) established a Student Editors’ Interest Group (SEIG).

This interest group is made up of college journalists and their advisers from colleges and universities across the Commonwealth. Similar to the professional industry, many college newspapers are faced with budget constraints and little resources. The Foundation and PSNE realize the importance of preserving and promoting campus newspapers. SEIG provides a forum for student-newspaper journalists to discuss common challenges and concerns.

We invite all Pa student journalists and their newspapers advisers to join the Student Editors’ Interest Group.

To become a member, contact Teresa Shaak at or (717) 703-3003. You will be added to our list serv and to receive updates about activities and opportunities available to members of SEIG.
