What is Opinion?

The Opinion section is unique in hosting a diverse set of voices separate from typical editorial constraints. Columnists are a sounding board for the UCLA community, offering commentary on the state of the university, Los Angeles, California and higher education. We accept applicants of all levels!

Roles and Responsibilities

Columnists write opinion columns approximately once every two weeks. They are responsible for seeking out argumentative pitches, with the help of their editors, and are encouraged to comment on the happenings at UCLA, the University of California, the state of California, or on college campuses in general. Columnists are expected to carry out reporting for their work and uphold the standards of the Daily Bruin in professionalism, reporting, and writing.
