The fall semester is underway, and Spoon University at VCU is looking for new team members! What is Spoon you might ask? Spoon University is an online food publication written by college students for college students! In other words, it is the everyday food resource for our generation. You might have seen us over on our Instagram @spoon_vcu, and if you're interested in applying for Spoon as a writer, marketer, photographer, or a videographer, then check out our five reasons to join Spoon University at VCU!

1. You get to explore food with us.

Who doesn't love food? Here at Spoon, we always try out new food on and off campus. You get to try new restaurants in and around campus that you had no idea existed. Also, you get to hang out with us! Some of us love to cook meals together, so if you are a foodie like any of us, joining Spoon is perfect for you. 

2. Get experience and improve your skills.

When you join Spoon, you get to learn a lot about marketing, photography, writing, and making videos. You don't have to be a professional to do any of these things. We are always learning, and we will help you improve your skills and give you feedback! You don't even have to stick to one area, you can always learn the skills of any other one, or all of them. Using our platform Secret Sauce, you can train to utilize different mediums. For example, you can be both a photographer and a writer, or double as a marketer and a videographer!

3. Get the chance to work with an up-and-coming publication here on campus.
