The Marshall University Honors College Newsletter
The Honors Oracle strives to present Honors college news, information and student spotlights in a creative and factual way through the HON 484 course, which allows writers to earn one hour of Honors credit and editors to earn two hours of Honors credit. Students who take the course learn journalistic writing, develop their interpersonal skills through interviewing at least two sources per story if possible and create publishable work that could be suitable for resumes and portfolios. Students are required to write at least one story per issue, with three issues in the semester, but may do more if they wish. Students will also be required to attend at least seven of the Oracle’s eight meeting times per semester, where they discuss story ideas or edit their peer’s rough drafts. The Oracle will not meet during writing weeks. Editors help their peers to develop story ideas, edit their work and act as a bridge between the Honors College and the Oracle staff, with one editor being tasked with designing the Oracle. Reporters have a chance to move into editing positions if they wish to do so.
