Welcome to The General.

The General is Herkimer College’s objective, student-produced news organization with a focus on providing campus news and features, delivered via an online platform.  Our goal is to build a campus community that provides truthful, unbiased, and reliable news for the college and its surrounding areas.

Created by Communication & Media seniors Sage Kuhlman, Andrew Gaillard, and Youssoupha Gueye in conjunction with Associate Professor Blake Pitcher, the digital newspaper serves the entire college campus, and encourages participation across all majors. Interested students may apply to participate as student editors, contribute content and pitch story ideas. We’re interested in a rich variety of content, from traditional articles and photography, to multimedia projects and podcasts.

A weekly meeting schedule will be announced for the Fall 2020 semester. We hope you enjoy this new initiative, and join us in this evolving journey of experiential learning.

Students interested in participating may contact Advising Editor, Blake Pitcher, at pitcherba@herkimer.edu.
