    Good evening.

    I’m wondering who can get involved with the station and how?

    I’m a student entering my 1st year at UBC this fall.

    I have been working as a journalist for roughly a year, and have a diploma in broadcast journalism from BCIT. I would like to contribute or get involved in some fashion.

    Thanks for our time!

  • Sam says:

    Hey I heard that Citr was looking for a visual artist for maybe some ads or some posters? I’m not sure, I can’t remember where I heard that, But if you guys are looking for an artist I would love to give it a shot! Just contact me if there’s any good opportunities?
