The ViewPoint is the student publication of Northeast C0mmunity College.
The goal of the ViewPoint is to provide an engaging perspective on news and commentary that serves the needs of the NECC Community while also serving as an educational experience for the student staff.
The ViewPoint started-out as an underground paper at Norfolk Junior College in the late 1960′s. By 1968 President Dr. Michail Paradise asked the editors of the ViewPoint to take-over management of the campus official student newspaper, The BlackHawk. In November of that year, the name of the BlackHawk was changed to the much more popular ViewPoint.
When the college merged with Northeast Nebraska Technical College in 1973, the ViewPoint came-along.
The staff of the ViewPoint strives to cover a blend of campus and community news from all over northeast Nebraska. The home office of the publication is at the Norfolk Campus, but staff often serve from the West Point and O’Neill Education Centers as well as the College Center in South Sioux City.
In the past, most of the staff has been Journalism program students, but with major changes in recruiting and the publications position as a true student publication, most staff now come from any number of educational areas. Students interested in working for the ViewPoint should contact the advisor, Jason A. Elznic, at the Norfolk Campus or contact the staff at the email address below.

The ViewPoint will cease publication of its monthly print newspaper in December, 2012 in order to focus on daily news coverage on the web. As we make that transition through the fall semester and into early January 2013, web readers can expect more interactive features and expanded daily coverage.
The staff is currently reviewing ad policy and price based on our transition to web-only news. Please contact us via email@example.com for current rates and possible package pricing.
How can I get a newspaper?
On campus, look for the monthly publication in common seating areas and dorm mail. Because we are ceasing print publication this winter, the ViewPoint is not adding readers to the mailing list at this time.
Can I get back issues?
Some limited back issues are available. Contact the staff at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Can I get a reprint of a photo featured on the website or paper?
Digital copies of photos are available for a small fee (to be determined based on the photo and intended usage). Please respect our students’ work as well as copyright law and not copy any material found on our website without permission. Any material belonging to the ViewPoint can be used for a fee, to be based on fair market value. Any publication, print or digital, that uses material from the ViewPoint without permission will be asked to cease and will be billed for the duration said material remains in circulation.
I found some old copies of the ViewPoint in a box in my attic from when I went to Northeast. Do you want them?
Yes! In fact, we are missing many back issues throughout the ViewPoint’s history (even from the last few years) and would gladly accept donation of any old issues. (OK, we admit, this isn’t a FAQ, but it has been asked before, and we really could use those back issues for our archive).
