Communications at JBU - You'll get to:

Write for the Newspaper

JBU's award-winning student newspaper, The Threefold Advocate, is home to many communication students in the newly remodeled newsroom. The bi-weekly publication develops students in writing, reporting, editing, photography, design, and more. 

Gain Professional Experience

You'll be able to gain on-air experience at JBU's professional radio station, KLRC. Located in downtown Siloam Springs, students have easy access to the facility and programs. The station broadcasts with an impressive 100,000 watt signal to multiple states. 

Be a DJ

Real FM, KLRC's online sister station, plays a mixture of Christian and secular music, giving a message of hope without glossing over the dark and difficult stuff in the world. 

Learn about Sports Broadcasting

Work closely with JBU Athletics to broadcast and commentate at home games. You can help run the video of the games by capturing key moments of soccer, basketball, and volleyball. Additionally, each season brings opportunities to commentate the games.

Work on the Yearbook

The Nesher is JBU's yearbook and has been a part of our university since 1926. Operating under the name Nesher since 1982, the yearbook highlights the academic year through a beautiful display of photography, print, and graphic design.
