Dayton Campus Connect Intern Program

To Apply – fill out the form at

College Intern Job Description (DMM) is an online magazine covering things to see, do and get involved with in the Dayton Region. In a partnership with SOCHE and the Downtown Dayton Partnership, DMM has created a new section called Dayton Campus Connect which will feature articles written by area college interns about various local topics – including events, venues and local people.

Interns will be selected from area colleges to intern for one semester with DMM as contributing authors. After an initial training session on using Wordpress, story topics and deadlines will be assigned by the DMM Editorial Staff via email. Student interns will be expected to post at least ten articles within the semester (may vary depending on complexity and necessary research time). DMM Editorial Staff will maintain a schedule that all interns can access and will include topic info, due dates and actual article submission dates. At the end of the semester, student interns will submit their respective evaluation forms to DMM Publisher Bill Pote at no less than two weeks before they are due.

Article Guidelines

Articles will be between 500 and 1,500 words and include at least one photo/image (either taken by student intern or downloaded from the web). Content will vary depending on topic, but overall the student intern should write articles with the perspective of a college student. One of the purposes of this program is to expose student interns to various things happening in the region, and through their articles – expose other college students to what the region has to offer. DMM Editorial Staff will provide topic-specific guidelines per article, and will be available throughout the semester for additional guidance.


In addition to general topics that will be assigned throughout the semester, the following is a list of general topics that DMM covers:

#61623 Local Music

o Bands, venues, shows, etc.

#61623 Local Theatre

o Community theatre, professional theatre, venues, individual performers, etc.
