The semester is nearly over, all the submissions are in, and while the editors read and meet and comment on all the work received, we need to start thinking about the next semester. Elections for Senior Staff positions on the OTR will be held in the next few weeks, so if you're interested in holding office with the magazine, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org now.
Senior Staff positions can be hard work, but it's very rewarding and looks quite good on a resume. Students only need to be matriculated at Hunter college to hold office. Experience is not necessary, but passion is.
There are ten main positions at the OTR. Please indicate which office you'd like to run for in your email. Say a little about why you would like to work with us, and what you would bring to the table as an OTR staffer. We will get in touch with you soon to schedule an interview.
In addition to the main positions, there are always other things you can do with the magazine. If you are passionate and have ideas, we can use you! Just email us.
Please email email@example.com by the end of next week to be considered. You may run for any of the ten staff positions. An asterisk by the title means that the current staffer is graduating, changing positions, or otherwise leaving. As you can see, a lot of positions are wide open right now.
Read more for the ten positions. Good luck!

The OTR will be running a book drive through BetterWorldBooks until May 24. At the end of the semester we will send ALL the books to BWB and a percentage of the proceeds will go towards Books For Africa.
We will accept any undamaged, lightly used book/textbook. Check out their list of accepted books here. It's a great way to get rid of books that you cannot sell-back.
COLLECTION LOCATIONS (look for a big, green box & drop your books in the slot!):
Drop them directly at our office, TH 212
TH 115 Media Board
TH 202 SRC
HN 121 USG
HW 1st & 3rd floor lobby
We have gotten a very positive response from the community so keep the donations coming in!
Here's a look at what will happen to your donations:
* In case you were wondering, OTR will not be collecting any payment through BWB for this drive.

From Plato to Thomas Moore to Orwell to Gene Roddenberry, creative minds have wrestled with the hope (and fear) of a perfect society, and all the attendant delights and problems. So come join in the brother/sisterhood of man/woman, grab some free food and drinks provided for you by your benevolent leader, and get on the stage to express yourself!
This year, the OTR will be doing its best for humanity by holding a book drive with betterworldbooks for global literacy. Come donate used books --- textbooks, workbooks, books for class, books for fun, any books --- and help raise money for the National Center for Family Literacy, Room to Read, Books for Africa, and Worldfund.
Check in on Facebook or just show up at the door. All are welcome. ALL WILL BE ASSIMILATED. (Kidding!)

What did you do this winter? The OTR got involved with the Hunter Theatre Company in their wonderfully D.I.Y. production of Sean Graney's "The 4th Graders Present an Unnamed Love-Suicide," a play about being young, being in love, and blowing your brains out.
