Washington Square News Fundraiser

Founded in 1973 after New York University’s University Heights and Washington Square campuses merged, Washington Square News delivers news daily to thousands of readers around NYU’s Manhattan and Brooklyn campuses, Greenwich Village, Brooklyn Heights and all of NYU’s global campuses. Content is published five days a week during the academic year, as well as in a weekly print edition. We cover news, culture, arts, editorial and sports from around campus and New York City, in conjunction with our magazine, Under the Arch. 

 

Washington Square News is run by undergraduates with a diverse array of interests including reporting, writing, editing, coding, photography, video production, design, illustration, and business. We strive to serve our readers daily with the most relevant information about the university and student life. The paper’s most important mission is to hold administration at NYU accountable and advocate for the student body. As the largest private university in the U.S., it’s important NYU has a newspaper that calls out those in power and makes sure the student voice is never ignored. 

 

As is the case with most media, WSN isn’t exempt from the volatility facing the journalism industry, and every semester seems like a struggle to keep the paper alive and pay its staff. That is our biggest priority: in an industry that already requires so much financial privilege to enter, WSN should be as accessible as possible to students of all backgrounds who choose to start their careers here. Your donations will help us keep independent journalism alive on NYU's campus and help us empower a young, diverse group of journalists with skills to thrive in journalism.
