Spectator is Columbia's largest student-run media group. We are the parent organization of the Columbia Daily Spectator, The Eye, Spectrum, The Shaft, Courses@CU, Eat@CU, and the Orientation Guide.  

Our Mission

Spectator's mission has two parts equal in importance. We create publications, products, and events united by a goal of helping our audience make the most out of their Columbia experience. Spectator has a 139 year tradition of doing this through journalism, and we still know that our best and most effective work comes through telling in-depth, well reported stories that hold those in power accountable for the decisions they make. 

What our staff gets out of the experience of working at Spectator is as important to us as the work we do. We take the growth and development of our staff members so seriously that we consider them an explicit part of our mission, not of secondary benefit to what Spectator creates. Through doing the work of journalism, business, and technology, our staff members grow as people, thinkers, and leaders in a way that is transferable to any industry. We encourage anyone interested in joining Spectator to check our recruitment page or email join@columbiaspectator.com
