Various organizations and activities keep students informed and foster collegiality. The SPA is a student-run club that brings in professional photographers and sponsors workshops and field trips. It also holds dinners and other social activities.
Our Yahoo Group is an electronic message board where information is posted daily. It has over a thousand members including faculty, students, alumni and friends.
Another way of staying in touch with the SECPS community is through our Facebook page. This is used more casually and conversationally than the Yahoo site.
Our Blog , Sightline, is a place for serious, in-depth discussion of current topics in photography in which we facilitate, and contribute to, the conversation among the global photography community.
Our students can participate in “In Motion” and “Ole.” “In Motion” is an award-winning monthly newspaper that publishes Fall and Spring semesters. In Motion accepts letters to the editor from students, staff and faculty, as well as article submissions, which may be edited to fit current journalistic standards. Students gain valuable skills, experience and career counseling by becoming a staff member. In Motion is always seeking photographers from our program. An online, electronic version of "In Motion" features streaming video and multi-media additions. “Ole” is a yearly literary magazine of students’ writing and photography that publishes during the Spring semester. The annual edition is unveiled during an annual Poetry Slam, when students celebrate its publication.
