Hello, DBU students, alumni, faculty and friends! Welcome to Odyssey, where students are given a voice and are able to write freely on topics that important or pressing to them. I was part of the launching team from Dallas Baptist University in April 2016, and as of July 2016 have transitioned to Editor-in-Chief. I have been changed wholeheartedly by this experience – and this journey is just beginning!
To give a brief background of Odyssey, the movement was started in June 2014 when students found that the media was not featuring the ideas and innovations of young people in the 18-26 age group. It was founded on the principles of democratizing content while creating deeper, more meaningful conversations among every nation. Growing to 50,000 pieces of content per month, Odyssey gives every reader a piece to satisfy their craving for great writing. Everything is considered on the platform, from politics and women’s rights, to the best hangout spots on campus. Odyssey writers are called “content creators." A creator is in charge of submitting a piece on any topic and of any length once a week. This gives the creator time to work, study, volunteer and spend their time enjoying their college experience.
DBU’s close-knit team is looking for a few good men (and women) to join forces with us in showing the world truth logically and lovingly. Our team shows the world wit, honesty, and slight satire. We are individuals who each bring a unique story to the platform from an original perspective. Even so, we are a humble embodiment of the Lord’s work and hope we show His handiwork through every action we commit. We pray that we are able to grow so we can advance the Lord’s Kingdom with the skills of communication, writing, and research that He has given us.
Students, when you join our team, you will be an integral part of a multi-award-winning social media platform that allows you to express your mind, while immersing yourself in an active, supportive community. You will be a plus-one in delivering truth and wholesome content. You will be part of a groundbreaking movement.Request an invite to join our community today!
