PRIME is the Daily Bruin’s quarterly magazine that covers a wide array of topics related to UCLA and Westwood. In the past, we have published investigations on animal experimentation at UCLA and predatory landlords in Westwood, told the stories of walk-on athletes and students with dependents, and highlighted the work of a union leader who’s a senior custodian on campus. Some contributors have also written personal columns about topics like growing up with immigrant parents and losing a grandparent during the COVID-19 pandemic. PRIME stories typically require in-depth reporting, strong writing, and a knack for narrative storytelling to produce engaging pieces for our magazine. If you're interested in pursuing a career in journalism or longer-form writing, PRIME is a great place to learn more about the Westwood community, make friends in the newsroom, and start building a portfolio of journalism clips. Contributors to the magazine have gone on to work for Variety, Bloomberg, The Hollywood Reporter, Yahoo Finance and Los Angeles Magazine.
