    Probably no CCA in RI has shared such great affinity with Google Docs, Microsoft Word, and WordPress; or the odd tiff with blank pages on 3am mornings when the mind starts to be more functional. Press has come a long way. Since the establishment of our online publication in 2012, Word of Mouth has spread rapidly, garnering more than 2 million views. But neither legacy nor tradition dictate Press. Rather, we are governed by the down-to-earth pursuit of perspectives, and the desire to share these insights with an audience.

    Press gives you a taste of what being in a formal organisation might be like. Collaborating with CCA mates, working closely with editors, and striding the fine line between political correctness and insensitivity – these are valuable and transferable life skills to be gained. If you have observations to share, opinions to voice, and are willing to commit to the challenges that student journalism will confront you with, we look forward to having your name on our Byline.
