This week marks the long awaited return of ODE’s very own newspaper. The ODE Owl.
Last year students Danny Amador, Oscar Caudell and Luke Fisher had the idea to create an ODE newspaper for students and their families. The paper ran for four issues publishing one every two weeks. When the 2019-2020 ODE year started it was revealed that it had a small chance of coming back. But now we can exclusively reveal that on November 8th they will be releasing a six page Special Edition paper. This behemoth issue will pick up where it left off with news from both the last session and news on what’s to come. The paper, ODE To Journalism can reveal, has lost the majority of its staff and is on the hunt for new members to join. This means that any student who wishes to submit articles to their paper or even join the ODE Owl have a much better chance.
So why are they even coming back? Don’t they know that they have some healthy competition in the form of us? Odetojournalism.com and the ODE Owl are not rivals. They have two completely different formats, articles, and ways of distribution. We are planned in class. Written over the week and published on Thursdays. The ODE Owl are planned during the week, Written during the week, and handed out on fridays. The ODE Owl does have a website but for completely different reasons.
What is the point of actually reading their newspaper? For one they sort of put all their eggs in one basket, so to speak. On average they put over a dozen articles in a single copy of their paper. They have class recaps, opinions and editorials, recent news, comics, games, and more. All of this content for free!
