For more than 70 years, the Northeastern News covered city and campus news as Northeastern’s student newspaper. In 2008, the Northeastern News became independent from Northeastern University, forming the 501(c)3 nonprofit organization World Series Way Publishing, Co and assuming the name The Huntington News.Since The News left the university to maintain editorial independence, it has been funded, published and produced entirely by Northeastern undergraduate students. Every day, students—who are unpaid—report, write, edit and contribute dozens of hours to keep the paper running.
Now, we need something more to keep it running—we need your help. The Huntington News is in nearly $17,000 in debt to our printing company and main creditor. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to The News to support student journalism so we can continue to tell the stories of our students and hold university administration accountable. Any donation you make will help pay for printing, maintenance and equipment costs.
Thank you for your support.
