The Oak Leaves, Manchester’s campus newspaper, is published weekly, except for semester breaks during the academic year. Established in 1913, the paper serves as a forum for community commentary and opinion, and as a vehicle for news that relates to the Manchester campus.

The Oak Leaves is edited by Manchester students and supervised by the Student Publications and Media Committee, which is made up of students and faculty, including the Oak Leaves editor in chief and advisor. The committee appoints the editor who in turn appoints the paper’s editorial, business, and production staff. The editor in chief and all staff appointees receive honoraria for their work.

Unpaid staff writers are often members of journalism or editing classes, but any student is welcome to work for the paper as an extra-curricular activity. Students interested in writing, copy editing, photography, advertising, business and newspaper design are encouraged to get involved. Any full-time student may apply for an editorial or managerial position.
