Antorcha del Sur

In 2010, journalism professor Jay Seidel started the Spanish-language publication La Antorcha, which published both digitally and in print, and was later rebranded to become Antorcha del Sur. In 2011, Fullerton College became the first community college in California to offer a Spanish-language publication class, and, in 2018, Fullerton College offered the class as a dual enrollment Spanish-language reporting class at Anaheim High School.

The Spanish-language publication class has not been offered at Fullerton College since 2020 due to low enrollment, and Antorcha del Sur is currently on hiatus. However, Inside Fullerton students have published Spanish-language content in select issues, and any students interested in Spanish-language reporting should contact Jessica Langlois at [email protected]. Past advisers of Antorcha del Sur include Jay Seidel and Joanna Jacobo Rivera.
