What is the TUSK Magazine?
Tusk magazine is the annual student magazine of Cal State Fullerton. Our stories celebrate our campus com- munity. Tusk gives Communications students the opportunity to produce print and online content about the is- sues that matter to our student body. By offering an editorial window into SoCal culture and academic life, we help define what makes us Titans. Tusk has existed as a print-first publication for almost two decades, but we have an exciting future ahead of us as a multimedia magazine. In addition to the annual print issue, we use our website and social media to share interactive content. We’re always looking for skilled writers, editors, designers, photographers, web producers, multimedia editors, and event planners.
Two COMM courses are responsible for creating Tusk. Students gain valuable experience working in niche publishing while producing evergreen stories without hard news pegs. If you join Tusk, you can expect to develop a professional portfolio that help you land a job in the magazine industry or beyond.
