Arts & Culture is the most versatile section of the Vanguard, and thus requires a disciplined editor to ensure a level of continuity and expectation for our readers. Stories should focus primarily on campus related events, cheap and accessible events around campus, and finally on major national or international cultural and artistic events that affect the PSU community.

The Arts & Culture section includes PSU and Portland A&C events, including but not limited to: art, literary arts, food, drink, special events, special lectures, cultural issues, cultural information, dance, music, film, festivals, special activities, travel, theatre, games and lifestyle.
The position requires a time commitment of 15–20 hours per week.
Please see student eligibility requirements listed above for all open positions. The editor receives $1900 per term through an Educational Leadership Service Award. Position starts immediately.
