All Northwestern students are welcome to join The Daily. Regardless of your interests, this is a place where you'll be able to develop your skills and produce content you're passionate about.
This year, we won Best All-Around Daily Student Newspaper and Newspaper Editorial Writing in the Society of Professional Journalists' Mark of Excellence awards. We also won an online Pacemaker — considered the most prestigious award in college journalism — as of the nation's best college newspapers this fall.
Our alumni have gone on to work in at the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, LA Times, Chicago Tribune, ESPN, The Athletic, Sports Illustrated, People, Time, The Atlantic, The New Yorker, Politico and so many other organizations. We've also had former staff members get jobs at video/documentary websites and in graphic design and illustration positions.
But it's not just all work, and those alumni have left almost always saying working at The Daily was the best part of their college experience because of the friends they made in the process and how rewarding being a part of making this paper was.
