The Huntington News

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.

At The News, undergraduate and graduate students work alongside Northeastern alumni on our Board of Directors to maintain the high standard of quality the community has come to expect from its student newspaper.

The News is published every week online and every other Thursday in print during the fall and spring semesters, with more than 60 students contributing to its production. We are always available for breaking news online.

The News is the most frequently published and well-read publication on campus. It features campus, city, sports, lifestyle and opinion sections. Students interested in writing for The News are encouraged to attend a Monday night general meeting at 8 p.m. in 157 Holmes Hall or email [email protected].

Northeastern University

Northeastern is one of the largest universities in Boston. 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 story. US News and 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 eight colleges: Bouvé College of Health Sciences; College of Arts, Media, and Design; College of Social Sciences and Humanities; College of Science; College of Engineering; D’Amore-McKim School of Business; College of Computer and Information Science; and College of Professional Studies. Including all disciplines, Northeastern has more than 25,000 students and employs more than 3,600 faculty and staff members.
