Interested in promoting and participating in open discourse on campus?

Join The Lion, Columbia’s only open-submission publication accepting content (media, prose, etc.) from any Columbia student, affiliate, or alumnus. We’re looking for new writers, editors, techies, and anyone interested in helping amplify the unheard voices in the Columbia community and make life at Columbia easier.

Current members have done everything from meeting with actors from the breakout Broadway show Hamilton to discussing politics and journalism with top leadership at some of America’s biggest news publications. Members also have access to Lion exclusive events including talks with alumni, exclusive interviews, restaurant tastings, and information sessions with recruiters from Facebook, Google, the New York Times, and more! Hey, no one said discourse had to be boring.

On top of having something for everyone regardless of major, we strive to balance club needs with your mental health and academic needs. As one of the lowest-commitment publications on campus, you’ll be able to make visible impact while still maintaining work/life/club balance.

Current Opportunities:
Technology and Multimedia – Design tools and products that make life at Columbia easier
Journalism – Write content about campus life and foster open discourse.
Columnist – Get Your own column website and write around a set theme
Campus Outreach – Help us spread word about The Lion and our mission
