We are The Rival. Our goal is to represent every single student interest, student group, gender, race, ethnicity, every single nationality, everything. Whether you are a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess, or a criminal… you should have a voice in The Rival.

We are a publication platform run by students, for students, at George Mason and across the nation, and we want your voice to be heard. Make news that your friends care about. Don’t be angry at the media; be the media. Let’s localize news together, and make a place that represents who we are at Mason as college students.

Our mission is to modernize campus news, change campus dialogue for the better, give anyone (journalism major or not) a voice.

You don’t have to be a staff member to contribute. Contribute your voice today by emailing us at

Believe in our mission? Join the team and help us help each other to improve.

Applications are due April 22 at 11:59 p.m. Click here to apply.

We are also interested in featuring student-created art for story cover photos. Link to your online profile. We go viral, and that means your art will, too.

The application process is a formality. Remember we are a fun, edgy, and exciting news and entertainment publication. If you are funny, be damn funny. If you are unique, then show us something we have never seen before.

What’s in it for you?

Intrinsic Rewards: The Rival gives you a powerful voice that reaches hundreds and often thousands of your peers. And since George Mason is in the network of The Rival schools, your work can be recognized by hundreds of thousands of people all over the country.

Additionally, The Rival is an entirely new concept. It’s a startup. It’s disruptive. It’s growing every day. By joining, you’d be taking a risk because you will be part of a new publication. But remember: with risk comes high reward.

Professional Rewards: The Rival provides you with resume and portfolio builders whether you’re a Director, an Editor, a Staff Writer, a Marketer, or a contributor. We can analyze your readership, give reports, and improve.

Social Rewards: The Rival, simply put, is cool. Our goal is to rival everything else: institutionally backed student organizations, rigid student governments, and traditional campus newspapers. The “About Us” page is one of the most visited because people want to see who’s responsible for this new wave of content.
