The Orion


Help The Orion fund leadership awards!

Orionites work 10-20 hours a week on the paper, but increasingly, they must also work part-time jobs. Many also have a full load of classes. That’s why The Orion is asking loyal alumni and passionate supporters to donate $500 leadership awards. Your money will ensure that student journalism at Chico State remains independent, vigilant and quality-driven. Donations of any amount will be accepted and acknowledged.
