Shed Light on Great Stockton Events!

Have Your Photos in Print
See your photos next to headlines in the paper.
Staff photographers are paid $10 per high resolution (300 dpi +) photographs not taken on a smartphone.
Articles must be 350 words or more (except if you are submitting poetry) and must be submitted in a Microsoft Word or Google Doc form with your name in the document. If your name is not in the document, whatever shows up next to your email will be used if we decide to publish it (sometimes this can be “Google User” so watch out!).
The Argo has 4 sections that articles are divided into:
News – Objective news reports about current events on Stockton campus and in the world.
Your Voice – Opinion articles such as editorials, persuasive pieces and reviews of movies, TV shows, books, etc.
Creative Highlight – Creative writing pieces such as poetry or prose.
Academic Highlight – Short academic papers to share with your peers.
In all seriousness, we post our office hours every semester on our office door. You can expect an Argo staff member who can answer your questions during office hours. If you need to talk to someone in person outside of our office hours, please email us.
