Oak Leaves

The Oak Leaves

The Oak Leaves, Manchester’s campus newspaper, is published on Fridays 10 times a semester 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 The Oak Leaves editors-in-chief and advisor. The committee appoints the editor who appoints the paper’s editorial, business and production staff. The editors-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. For more information, email
