About Us

The Newswire was originally called The Xavierian News and was founded by Xavier’s law school in 1915.

Today, The Xavier Newswire is the independent student newspaper of Xavier University.

We serve the 5,000 students of Xavier in addition to the faculty, staff, alumni, and local community. It is an 8-12 page newspaper which covers campus news and events, Xavier athletics, the Cincinnati arts scene and events in the Cincinnati area. Circulation of the paper is 1,200, and the paper is available for free at many locations on Xavier’s campus.

The Newswire functions as an introduction to the world of journalism for students who wish to gain hands-on experience in the newsroom.

The Xavier Newswire is a public forum, Xavier University’s independent student newspaper and all content decisions are those of the editors.

The Newswire is published on Thursdays, and staff meetings are also on Thursdays. Anyone is welcome to attend — no prior journalism experience is needed.

The Newswire can be best reached via email at newswire@xavier.edu .
