A Night at Daily Campus Production Gallery


The production crew at the Daily Campus are those tasked with the job of putting together the digital side as well as the print version of UConn’s student-run newspaper. This photo story gives a glimpse into the inner workings of Daily Campus production, featuring the members at the Daily Campus Tuesday night production on Nov. 1, 2022.

Framed special editions of the Daily Campus newspaper hang displayed for everyone to see within the main working room inside the Daily Campus building located in Storrs, Conn. Special edition copies like these along with other Daily Campus paper copies from the past adorn the interior walls of the building, welcoming those that enter into the heart of UConn’s newspaper.

Photo producer Jessica Tusa uses Adobe Photoshop to crop and touch up a UConn women’s volleyball image at the photo computer to be sent to the working sports designer. Photo producers work with and provide photos for designers producing the print copy, along with digital designers who put together articles and images for the online pieces of the Daily Campus. The Daily Campus Photo Department provides pictures for most of the home games for UConn sports among other on-campus related events, creating a large archive for photo producers to choose from on the night of production.

Associate Managing Editor Emily O’Bannon works on positioning a piece of artwork into her page design as her work shift comes to an end. The production crew can be on the job as late as 12 or 1am in the morning preparing the pages to be printed for later that day, but all of their effort adds up in the end to create and provide copies of the Daily Campus newspaper for the UConn community on a weekly basis.
