The Odyssey Comes to Quincy University

Ian Howell –

The Odyssey Online is looking for Quincy University students to create content for its media site. The Odyssey is a social platform that allows college students and other young writers to contribute and share their thoughts and ideas.

Students can apply as an Editor-in-Chief, Social Media Director, Contributing Editor, Photographer, Multimedia Coordinator, and a Writer. They will be paid by The Odyssey depending on the amount of shares their content receives from social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, and Tumblr.

Alex Begnel, a freshman and a Human Services and Psychology major, currently writes for The Odyssey. He encourages students to write for The Odyssey and make their words matter.

“Everyone has their own opinion. Everyone has a voice. The Odyssey is an incredibly great market for college students to speak their mind and have their opinions and words of wisdom shared with the world,” Begnel said. “You don’t necessarily have to be a great writer to write for The Odyssey. You may tell yourself you are horrible at writing. Some of you may actually be horrible. But, I encourage you to explore your creativity. Take a chance.”

For more information on how to join The Odyssey, contact Alex Begnel at alex.begs@yahoo.com, Sydney Thuirer at thuirsy@quincy.edu, or Nora Baldner at schnano@quincy.edu.
