The Current Student Newspaper has been at the University of Missouri-St. Louis since 1966. Our Current Alumni are a great asset to the success of our students.

Current alumni can be involved in a number of ways. Reading the stories each week can help you stay involved with things happening on the campus as well as get to know the students in the organization currently.

  1. You can pick up a weekly edition on campus, read online or sign up for the weekly newsletter here.
  2. Come to our alumni events! The Spaghetti Dinner fundraiser is in the fall. Make sure to check our social media pages on those dates and announcements or email for information.
  3. Come in and speak with journalists about the different career opportunities they could pursue after college.
  4. Suggest stories for our staff writers to cover or attend.
  5. Offering internship opportunities, scholarship opportunities or job experience to our Current staff members.

Feel free to contact the paper’s Editor-in-Chief, Advisor or our Alumni Representatives about questions on how to get involved.

Alumni Representatives
Starting in 2017-2018 academic year, two alumni volunteers were asked to join The Current in an advisory role. Feel free to contact them with questions, ideas for The Current or events or comments.
