The News’ History

For 82 years, The Northeastern News was a major source of news at Northeastern University.

Now known as The Huntington News, the paper went independent from the university in the summer of 2008. In the new space, undergraduate students work alongside Northeastern alumni to maintain the high standard of quality the community has come to expect from its student newspaper.

The News is published on Thursdays during the fall and spring semesters with more than 50 students contributing to its production.

The News is the most frequently published and well-read publication on campus. It features campus and city news, sports, entertainment and editorial sections.

Students interested in writing for The News are encouraged to attend a budget meeting or contact a section editor.

Northeastern University

Northeastern University, one of the largest universities in Boston, celebrated its centennial anniversary in 1998. The university is widely respected as the national leader in cooperative education, a program that enables students to alternate between classes and full-time jobs in their field of study. US News & World Report has consistently ranked Northeastern among the best co-op programs in the country, and in 2013, the university broke into its top 50 national universities list.

Northeastern is made up of of eight colleges: Bouvé College of Health Sciences, Arts, Media & Design, Social Sciences and Humanities, Science, Engineering, the D’Amore-McKim School of Business, Computer and Information Science, and Professional Studies. Including all disciplines, Northeastern has over 25,000 students and employs over 3,600 faculty and staff members.
