WHAT Radio is Stetson University's Internet radio station, broadcasting globally 24/7. Featuring content covering everything from music to sports to comedy, Hatter Radio reaches listeners around the world.
Touchstone is Stetson University's annual literary magazine; it functions as a vehicle for student expression, publishing original pieces of fine art, literature, music, digital media and performance art regardless of the author's major, class, standing or academic experience. Touchstone prints the best of student submissions, decided by committee; special recognition may be awarded to students whose work in their genre is deemed exceptional by the editing team.
Uncouth Hour is a weekly open-mic event affiliated with Touchstone at which Stetson’s community of artists are offered an opportunity to share their work with others in an environment conducive to literature and the arts. Uncouth Hour is held on Thursday evenings in Lee's Garage. Its sessions are open and welcoming, and offer cultural credit.
The Student Media and Publications Board
Student media at Stetson is governed by a student-run board of faculty, staff, students, and alumni.
The Student Media and Publications Board's constitution establishes student media policies and procedures, hires Hatter Network’s editor-in-chief annually, and represents student media on campus. It is the only entity at Stetson with the authority to review student media's actions and content to ensure it reflects responsible and ethical choices.
The Board’s meetings are open to the Stetson community.
