Fox Times

The Fox Times is the official monthly student publication of Fox Valley Technical College, and is staffed by students who write articles, take photos and design the publication.

The purpose of the Fox Times is to put out a high quality, student focused publication at least one time per month. The main goal for the Fox Times staff is to inform students. The staff will do this by:

  • Educating students about issues on campus and that concern college students.

  • Informing of events on campus and the results of those events.

  • Allowing students to voice their opinions.

  • Interviewing people in the campus community and providing human interest stories.

  • Including articles related to career paths, and other information that may help a student as they are training for their career.

Interested in being part of the Fox Times Staff?

Editorial meetings are held each Friday when classes are in session. Meetings are held at 2:30 p.m. in the Student Life Center (E137) conference room at the Appleton campus. Contact us for more details.

Have an article idea?

Please send any submissions to foxtimes@fvtc.edu.

The deadline for submissions is the 15th of each month. The Fox Times fills fast, so it is a good idea to notify us as early as possible if your club is planning to submit an article or advertisement in order to reserve a spot!

The Fox Times will give all articles, positions, opinions and writers equal attention.

Cite your sources for articles and photos as necessary.

Submit pictures or graphics as separate files from your text.

Include a title for your article. The title should not only gain the readers’ attention, but also describe what the article is about (Something like “Knitting Club Update” is not as descriptive a title as “FVTC Knitters Finish Record Breaking Afghan”).

Always include a byline – please do not assume that because you sent the email we will know that you wrote the article. Display the author’s name, as well as the name of the club or program that the author represents, just below the title of the article – not at the end of the article.

Please, only one article per club per issue.

All articles will be edited for grammar and length, when necessary, by the Fox Times editorial board and/or staff advisor. Corrected articles will be emailed to the writer. If no response is received within 3 business days, the Fox Times cannot guarantee its printing in the next issue.

The Fox Times reserves the right to refuse or edit any submitted material at its discretion. Submissions considered fraudulent, misleading, offensive, libelous, or detrimental to the newspaper, its advertisers or the public may be refused.

Attacking other students or staff will not be accepted unless the reference to others is removed. The opinion of whether the article is an attack on others or will be printed will rest with the Fox Times Editorial Staff.
