About Campus Radio – The Prairie Star

Campus radio at UIS serves as a working laboratory for experiential learning and as an enjoyable extracurricular activity for students.

Our goal is to provide an outlet for campus and community dialogue, artistic expression, social consciousness, and personal enrichment.

How You Can Participate

Students interested in being involved in the station should plan to enroll in COM 313 – Introduction to Radio. The next class will be offered during the Fall 2011 semester.

Students who have completed COM 313 may wish to take COM 311 – Audio Production. The class will be offered again in Spring 2012.

Students work in a state-of-the-art digital audio work lab, and two radio studios.
