Join

The Stanford Review is Stanford’s independent, alternative student publication. We aim to promote debate on issues that are are often overlooked by traditional publications on campus.

How can I get involved?

Anyone interested in learning more about The Stanford Review or getting involved is welcome to attend our weekly general meetings Monday at 6:30pm in Old Union 215. For more information on how to get started or on when and where we’re meeting, contact our Editor-in-Chief.

How do I get published?

Interested in writing something? We’ll put you in touch with one of our editors – either via email or at one of our weekly staff meetings – and let them know what you’d like to cover. They’ll be more than happy to work with you, whether you’re a novice who needs to be walked through your first article or a pro who just needs touch-ups here and there. Once you have approval, an outline is due on Thursday and the full draft is due on Sunday night. Then, the appropriate editor will work with you over the course of the week to get your article ready for press.

We’re happy to have contributions from both staff as well as our readers. For non-Stanford student readers who wish to contribute to The Review‘s print or online editions, send your contribution to our Editor-in-Chief, and they will connect you with the appropriate editor.

Why join The Stanford Review?

Make your voice heard

It’s no secret that conservatives, libertarians, and moderates are the minority on this campus. But that doesn’t mean your opinion shouldn’t matter. Join The Stanford Review and make your voice heard. Let’s make campus dialogue a reality—not just a nice idea.

Our Mission

We feature an array of campus-related content offering a range of viewpoints, all unified by their rational, logical approach and professionalism.

Tradition

Founded in 1987, The Stanford Review has long been the strongest bastion of the center-right on campus. Our alumni have gone on to do great things, from founding PayPal to producing movies like Thank You for Smoking. By joining The Review, you’ll become part of an organization with a long and proud history.

Community

Join The Stanford Review and you’ll get plugged into the campus’s small but strong community of conservatives, libertarians, and moderates.

Experience

No experience is necessary to join The Review. You will, however, gain experience. Whether you craft op-eds or interview Hoover Fellows, you’ll have the chance to sharpen your communications skills at one of the most respected publication on campus; that’s why being a member of The Review looks so good on a résumé, and not just for journalism jobs. In fact, the vast majority of our staffers go into something other than professional journalism.

Perks

Want to write, but worried you can’t make the time commitment? No problem. We give our writers plenty of freedom: you get to write what you want, when you want. It’s up to you to decide how involved you want to be.

But regardless of how much you end up writing, you’ll still get access to many of our perks, like lunches at the Hoover Institute, conferences and events with Review alumni, or the chance to meet conservative heavyweights.
