What is The Rival?
The Rival is a media startup comprised of major Universities across the nation united under one mission: to change the way we interact with campus media.

We strive to create a community of the most talented student Journalists, Satirists, Creatives, Strategists, and Leaders. All editorial, operational, and creative decisions are made at your University, and that's what separates us from every other outlet; there's no corporate arm. You know your school best so you make the decisions.

Position Descriptions and Requirements
Each school operates as their own independent digital media publication. In order to maintain the integrity of The Rival at your school, each staff member must understand that this is a job, not a hobby. You have a responsibility to your audience to create the best, most innovative, and most thought-provoking content.
