Familiarize yourself with the policy manual on legacystudentmedia.com. You are responsible for all the information there and to abide by the rules and guidelines.
You will get a press pass at the beginning of the year. It should be worn at all times. It is not a “get into things free” pass – unless you are working. It is also not a parking lot pass. Don’t abuse it or you lose it.
All materials you create are NOT to go on your personal social media. However, you’re strongly encouraged to follow and retweet things from @therideronline on Twitter.
