Since its inception in 1993, the Island Waves has stood as an official student publication at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. Unlike most universities, A&M-Corpus Christi does not have a journalism department, so it is our job to:
- Serve as a forum in which students can voice their concerns relevant to the university.
- Keep students updated on activities and issues concerning the campus community.
- Help students attain journalistic experience in a professional atmosphere.
Seventeen students are in charge of handling the newspaper students from choosing story ideas to designing the layouts to delivering the paper every Thursday. We also have a staff advisor that offers guidance.
The production of the Island Waves is generated in part from student fees and advertisement sales.
Articles and opinions in the newspaper reflect the thoughts of individual writers and do not necessarily reflect those of the views of other students, staff members, faculty, or administration of Texas A&M - Corpus Christi or the Texas A&M University system. Island Waves reserves the right to refuse business to anyone. Island Waves is published weekly, except during summer sessions. Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi has no journalism department, but to show its support for the student newspaper, the paper is supported by student fees and advertising sales. Any student or university employee can volunteer or submit material for publication consideration. To volunteer, e-mail or call the Island Waves office. To send a press release, fax to 825-2652. Commercial and advertising space rate sheets are available.
