About The Huntington News

‘ The News’ History

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

As part of its evolution, The News is in the process of making some exciting changes.

Now known as The Huntington News, the paper went independent from the university and relocated its office to a leased space at 295 Huntington Avenue 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. During the summer semesters, it is published every other Wednesday.

The News is the most frequently published and well-read publication on campus. It features news, sports, entertainment and editorial secitons, as well as a rotating section with alternating subject matter.
