Some of the story assignments require students to be on campus after 11 p.m.
Kevin Warneke, a School of Communication professor, met with Wendy Townley, the assistant director of University Relations, and Andrea Ciurej, the editor-in-chief of The Gateway, to produce a story list for Warneke's students before the beginning of the fall semester.
Warneke assigned stories to his students in class on Oct. 26. Before assigning the stories, Ciurej introduced herself to his class and familiarized students with The Gateway. Ciurej will serve as the photographer for the students covering stories on campus after hours.
Some stories will be published in a special section of The Gateway this month.
