The Arbiter helps students to gain real world experience while still learning how to become the best they can. One of the ways the Arbiter trains the students for work in a newsroom is by following the same layout of newsrooms all around the country. These students have applied and worked diligently for the positions they have earned. They continue to strive for the best news they can provide to their fellow Boise State students.
