The Eagle Eye, the official student newspaper of Lock Haven University, is published weekly in accordance with the University calendar. The articles, opinions, pictures and layout of the Eagle Eye are the responsibility of the staff, who are university students, and do not reflect the views of the students, the faculty or administration, unless otherwise specified. The Eagle Eye is funded by the Student Activity Fee and printed by the Williamsport Sun-Gazette in conjunction with the Lock Haven Express.
The student newspaper was first published in 1922 as The Normal Times. From 1928 to 1947, the name was changed to The College Times. In 1975, the student newspaper was renamed to its current name, The Eagle Eye.
We are Lock Haven University’s student newspaper, put together by LHU students, and printed weekly by the Williamsport Sun-Gazette (Williamsport, PA) in conjunction with the Lock Haven Express (Lock Haven, PA).

OPINION PIECES: If you have an opinion you would like to be published in our opinion section, send it to email@example.com. You must provide your first and last name for articles to be published in the Eagle Eye. We will not publish letters under pseudonyms or as anonymous.
HOW TO START WRITING OR WORKING FOR THE EAGLE EYE: Students may show up for meetings or sign up to be on the email list. Meetings are Thursday nights at 5pm in the lower PUB newsroom, which is down the hall from the Game Room. Deadlines are an important part of the learning experience at the Eagle Eye. The writer/photographer/etc. has from the night of the meeting until the specified deadline for the section (usually Tuesday or Wednesday afternoon) to send the story to firstname.lastname@example.org as an attached word document from their email. Deadlines are always subject to change, and so are meeting times and locations. Contact the newsroom directly in case meeting times/locations have been changed.
OPPORTUNITIES: Every staff member at the Eagle Eye has the opportunity to advance and be on the editorial staff/advertising team. Writing alone looks good for a portfolio, to be apart of the editorial team is a great experience too. Being apart of this team has led many students to acquire positions at media outlets throughout the nation. Not to mention, Eagle Eye staff members at times become lifelong friends and connections. We have a very close partnership with the Lock Haven Express, where many of our staff members have interned. Every year we usually have editors that graduate or leave and then positions that need filled. If you’d like to ask any questions about an editorial position, please don’t hesitate to email us.

PLEASE NOTE: There are not staff members in the newsroom at all times to check emails or voicemails, which come in high volumes. While we do our best to get back in touch with those who contact us, The Eagle Eye team is comprised of students with busy schedules and many other commitments, and sometimes cannot respond as quickly as we would like. Be persistent with requests, but also patient. As previously mentioned, we are not active during summer and holiday breaks, which may cause for further delays in response time. Thank you to all of our readers, advertisers, and all others who show interest in our publication.
