Experiential Learning

Our programs have a strong commitment to Experiential Learning. While linked to course work, we offer the following hands-on learning opportunities:

The Collegian & Aggie Central

The Cameron Collegian is the official student newspaper of Cameron University.

An operating free press, the Collegian is available each Monday during the regular academic year. It is printed by the Lawton Constitution and delivered across campus Monday afternoon.

The Collegian editorial staff is selected from CU undergraduate and graduate students. The entirety of the publication, from planning to publication, is managed by this student staff. The Collegian abides by the code of ethics and campus media statements outlined by the Society of Professional Journalists.

For more information on The Collegian contact David Bublitz


In our state-of-the-art TV Studio, students write, produce, digitally record, edit and broadcast news and feature programming regularly throughout the year. Students are in courses learning how to do so, but they also have continuous opportunities to master skills in Video production.

Layout and Design

Similar opportunities in layout and design using Adobe Creative Suite are worked into courses on other visual media.
