About Us

The Coast Report is the student newspaper for Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa, Calif. We publish every other week on Wednesdays each semester. Printed copies of the paper can be found in Coast Report newspaper boxes across campus. Our newsroom is located in Journalism room 101.

The Coast Report is a class and students can become staff members by registering for Journalism 115 in the course catalog. Students may register for three to seven units and often start with a three unit option and add more units as they become more involved in the paper and wish to devote more time to the course. We have section editors for the four sections of the paper in addition to an editor in chief, managing editor and copy editor. These positions traditionally go to returning students who are familiar with the paper and with journalism.
