The Santa Clara has been the university's trusted source of weekly news and information since 1922. Today, the newspaper reaches thousands of student and faculty readers each week in print, and more than 100,000 monthly at thesantaclara.com.
We like gathering the news, and we like others who are interested in doing what we do. If you are looking to be on The Santa Clara's editorial staff, click here to apply.
Frequently asked questions
Is the newspaper entirely student-run?
Yes. About 30 undergraduates, who work as reporters, editors, page designers (and even distributors), produce the paper you see each week in print and online.
How much content does the university require you to print each week?
None. The Santa Clara is virtually editorially independent from the university. Although the newspaper receives some funding from the university, editorial decisions are made entirely by student editors. The paper has an advisor, a journalism professor who offers critiques after the paper is published.
What awards has the newspaper won?
But, of course, we do this because we love the grueling hours we put in each week in the Benson basement.
