The Maroon


Since 1923, the publications of the Loyola Student Media have worked to serve “A Greater Loyola.”

That was the mission laid out by our founding editor, Harold A Dempsey, and that is the goal of the student journalists who work long hours and late nights producing The Maroon newspaper, The Wolf, The Maroon Broadcast, Howl About It and The Maroon Online.

Student-run, student-produced and student-managed, the publications within the Loyola Student Media serve both as a community news outlet for Loyola University, and as a learning laboratory for aspiring young media professionals.

The publications are governed by a code of ethics and a university policy statement.

The Maroon Newspaper

A weekly newspaper, The Maroon publishes issues on Friday mornings during the regular school year.

Founded Nov. 15th, 1923, The Maroon has served as Loyola’s newspaper as the university endured the Great Depression, a world war, civil rights struggles and the rebuilding following Hurricane Katrina.

Our online platform made its debut in 1998, The Maroon website serves a dual role: one as the interactive community of Loyola’s students striving to stay informed, share points of view and interact with their peers; and also as a way for alumni, parents and prospective students to keep up to date with Loyola.

The Maroon Online carries the written and photographic journalism featured in the printed pages of its sister publications, but also serves as a multimedia springboard, offering student journalists a platform to practice video journalism as well.

The content from the Student Media publications is featured and distributed through social media channels including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, Loyola Maroon App, and Youtube. We are constantly searching for new and innovative ways to share our journalism with the community, and we invite you to become our social media friends.

In our nine decades, The Maroon has garnered a long list of awards and recognition from city, state and national journalism organizations. Our graduates have moved on to such prestigious institutions as The New York Times,  CNN, The Washington Post, The Times-Picayune, The Advocate and the Associated Press.

We do not regard ourselves as a student newspaper, but rather a community newspaper serving a university.

The Wolf

Chronicling the life and happenings of Loyola, The Wolf offers a snapshot of the trends, lifestyles and personalities who make Loyola the unique community it is.

The Wolf is published six times per year – once each semester as a stand-alone magazine, and twice each semester as a newsprint supplement to The Maroon.

Born from The Wolf Yearbook in 1999, Wolf Magazine continues to carry the mission of being the cultural observer of Loyola’s campus.

The Maroon Broadcast

The staple of live broadcasting, The Maroon Broadcast is a weekly show show distributed on, our social media platforms, and our Loyola Maroon App. The show is anchored, produced and directed by students, giving the latest news on campus, throughout New Orleans and across the nation.

Howl About It

Howl About It is the literal voice of campus, serving as The Maroon’s weekly podcast. Episodes range on topics centered around Loyola or more topical news stories. Howl About It can be found on our website, SoundCloud or iTunes.
