Newsrooms_and campus newsrooms are no exception_are chaotic, fast-paced, and lively. That's why we love them. But reporting news is an important business, and everyone involved in that business needs some guidance and structure. Covering Your Campus provides the advice, rules, guidelines, and encouragement that every campus newspaper staff needs, without talking down to students or telling them what to do.

Campus media have become increasing important both as training grounds for the next generation of journalists and as vehicles to inform the academic community about matters of importance. Veteran journalist and campus newspaper adviser Matthew Nesvisky has written a smart, accessible guide aimed at helping student journalists and their advisers reach the next level of excellence. -- Elliot King, Loyola College in Maryland; co-author, The Online Journalist and The Online Student, Loyola University
Nesvisky's anecdotal approach will be more likely than many textbooks to engage the reader who has a real-world and not an academic need for understanding. And the book's conversational style also makes it an asset when it comes to articulating its key points....The guide is well organized and comprehensive, and the story-telling approach and smartly-written section heads help make it a lively read for those in need. * College Media Review *
This guide is right on target-a must-have resource in the campus newsroom! Nesvisky goes beyond the typical how-tos and asks readers to critically analyze principles in order to determine practice, so necessary in this precarious period for media. This guide presents the truths of running a student newspaper with loads of on-the-mark humor. -- Patsy Y. Iwasaki, University of Hawaii at Hilo and Hawaii Community College
