  1. Hello I am a current student at RCC, I would like to know as a photographer if I can submit work to be published. Thank you.

    1. Hello, if you have not already been to a mandatory orientation this week you won’t have a chance to join until the fall semester. You are allowed to submit one freelance photo per semester so if you have questions on how to do that email us at
