About & Contact

The Prospectus works to proliferate information relevant to Parkland-goers and provide its student workers with a space conducive to the learning environment.


The Prospectus is Parkland College’s campus-wide student newspaper, and has been in constant production since late 1968. Our reporters and editors are exclusively students of Parkland College with a variety of majors and career interests, not just communications and journalism. We set out to provide an outlet for students to further develop their writing, photography, communication, time management, and critical thinking skills while producing a quality, trusted source of news for Parkland-goers.

The Prospectus publishes weekly during Parkland’s spring and fall semesters and three times during the summer semester. Our 2017-2018 publication dates can be found in our media kit, under the “Advertising” tab; this website will be updated with new student-produced content on these dates.
