The Oak Leaf


The Oak Leaf is the award-winning, student-produced newspaper of Santa Rosa Junior College. Under the advisement of SRJC Instructor Anne Belden, The Oak Leaf is produced by members of the staff and the SRJC Journalism Department.

Students produce three to six printed publications a semester and distribute them throughout the SRJC community. They also provide round-the-clock coverage of SRJC breaking news, events, sports, arts and entertainment for this website and social media sites on FacebookTwitter, Instagram and SnapChat. Feel free to check each site to stay up-to-date on Santa Rosa Junior College news!

Joining the Oak Leaf

Do you have a natural curiosity about the world around you? Do you like to ask questions, learn new things and meet people from all walks of life? Do you want a job that’s dynamic, stimulating and fast-paced? Journalism may be the field for you.

The Oak Leaf newspaper gives SRJC students on-the-job training in reporting about Santa Rosa Junior College and the wider community. Students deliver stories in many forms: print, web, podcast, video and social media. The Oak Leaf offers hands-on opportunities for those interested in writing, copy editing, photography, video editing, podcasting, advertising, public relations, social media, graphic design and web management.

The Oak Leaf News Media class is Journalism 52A/B/C/D. We recommend taking Journalism 1 before or concurrently with Jour. 52A.
