The University News is a weekly publication with a circulation of 7,000. The newspaper is distributed throughout Saint Louis University's campus, as well as in four surrounding areas off campus. The organization offers practical experience in writing, reporting, editing, advertising, business and management. Founded in 1921, the University News is a true student organization, entirely self-funded, and managed and produced by students.
Pacemaker Awards are considered by most university journalists to be the top prize in college journalism. The weekend also recognized and awarded four-year daily newspapers, two-year college newspapers, yearbooks, magazines and online news sites. This was the 80th annual ACP/CMA National College Media Convention. More than 2,500 student journalists and advisers attended, representing colleges and universities throughout the United States.
