Get the message out = objective number one. A pretty fundamental and effective, although often overlooked, tactic on your campus is to write opinion pieces for your school paper. In all reality, it’s pretty easy to get published and you can’t argue with the fact that it’s free coverage. Plus, it doesn’t take a load of people in your group to organize an opinion section blitz; it’s rather simple.
Send in one opinion article each week and it will likely get published, that’s it; most school papers are in dire need of opinion pieces. One thing to remember, however, to maintain a long running opinion campaign, is to leave it unassociated with your group (you don’t want it to seem like it’s the “same old kids” writing the articles). Just make the pieces look like intelligent individuals want to voice the truth, through the avenue of the opinion section.
