The Daily Northwestern is a student newspaper at Northwestern University that is published on weekdays during the academic year. Established in 1881, and published in Evanston, Illinois, it is run entirely by undergraduates, many of whom are students at Northwestern's Medill School of Journalism.

The Daily has won the Columbia Scholastic Press Association and Associated Collegiate Press Pacemaker Award.[1][2]

Although it serves the Northwestern community, The Daily is unaffiliated with the university, being supported entirely by advertisers.[3] It is owned by the Students Publishing Company, which also publishes the Northwestern Syllabus yearbook. Current circulation is in excess of 7,500.[citation needed] The Daily Northwestern is the only daily print publication for both Northwestern and the city of Evanston, Illinois.[4]

The paper's offices are located on the third floor of the Norris University Center on Northwestern's Evanston campus.

Early history

The Daily is the descendant of two earlier publications, the Tripod and Vidette, the older of which began publishing in 1871, alongside or ahead of the earliest college newspapers in the United States. In 1881, in what is considered The Daily's founding moment, the two papers merged to become The Northwestern, only gradually shedding its literary-journal roots. Publication was increased to five days a week by 1910. The newspaper became independent of the university in 1923.[3]
