The Butterfly Club

Our club is a bible study setting that meets once every other week and discusses themes within the bible. Our mission is to provide a safe and judge free environment for all ethnic and cultural backgrounds at Fresno Pacific. We welcome all cultural backgrounds with or without knowledge of the Bible or Jesus Christ.

International Club 

As an international club, we are organizing events and trips in order to provide better college experience for both international and American students. Since most of the international students study abroad without having family or friends in the United States, international club is trying to fill in that gap and establish strong relationships and friendships between the students. Additionally, there are a lot of students who did not have a chance to visit some of the great places in California, and fortunately we will be able to organize events so they can get more familiar with American culture and tradition.

The Syrinx

The Syrinx (pronounced "SEAR INKS") is the student newspaper of Fresno Pacific University. It is published 3-4 times per semester. The name refers to the vocal organ of a bird.

Mission

Our mission is to inform, review, challenge and foster dialogue about issues, events and ideas within our immediate FPU community and the world at large. 

Role

The Syrinx desires to be the voice box and mirror of the FPU community by providing a resource where information can be sought and a medium through which ideas can be communicated. The intent of The Syrinx is to be an impetus, which provokes thought and provides clarity of understanding. The Syrinx hopes to enhance the experience of life within its community.

Function

To fulfill its role as the voice and mirror of the FPU community, The Syrinx staff will work to become familiar with the diverse facets of community life, such as student social life, student government, the wide range of programs and functions, academics, faculty and administration. Coverage of community life will be provided through new articles, feature stories, commentaries and editorials in each issue. The staff will work actively to encourage others within the community to present their voice and talent in The Syrinx.

How to participate

There are many ways for FPU students to participate in the school newspaper. The Syrinx is always seeking student writers, photographers, videographers, and social media contributors. Here are the three main ways students can contribute to The Syrinx:

  • Guest contributors are students who occasionally contribute content for the newspaper (e.g., write a column, cover an event, take photographs).
  • Staff contributors are students who enroll in Journalism Practicum (COM 155) and earn one activity unit per semester. Staff members contribute content to the newspaper regularly and attend weekly staff meetings.
  • Editors are students who are selected through an application and interview process. Successful applicants often have previous experience with The Syrinx and other publications, although any student may apply. Editors are awarded scholarships. They are responsible for overseeing the production of the paper. They meet twice weekly and contribute significantly to the production of The Syrinx.

Students who are interested in participating should contact editor@thesyrinx.com.
