The Tartan, telling the story of Radford, Virginia since 1979.

We’ve got something for everyone.

You may be interested in investigative journalism, feature writing, graphic design, digital marketing, photography, web development, or advertising. Whatever it is, there’s a place for you at The Tartan.

This IS where you start.

The Tartan has been the on-campus hub for thinkers, creators and leaders for over 40 years. We provide a fast-paced environment that is continuously changing, making learning something new an everyday task. 

We are small but big, and have fun doing it.

You might not be a professional yet, but The Tartan can help you get there. Roles that challenge you, rigorous deadlines which must be met, opportunities to learn through discovery, and building a team that can effectively push content out to the Radford campus.
