The Miami Student is an independent, student-run media outlet based in Oxford, Ohio. Newspapers are printed every Tuesday during the Miami University school year, and content is published online throughout the week. Please refer to our print calendar for specifics.

As the oldest university newspaper west of the Alleghenies, established 1826, we remain true to our core values and commit ourselves to providing the community with accurate, objective news. That being said, a lot has changed over the decades; technology has allowed journalism to transcend ink on a stack of paper. Because of this, we must constantly re-evaluate tradition in order to keep up. Our mission is to connect with readers on a daily basis by providing consistent coverage of the community. By incorporating multimedia components—audio, video, photos and graphics—with written stories, we attack news from all angles and provide in-depth analysis.


At The Miami Student we pride ourselves on our ability to provide factual content in a timely manner, but mistakes happen. Please notify if you catch a factual flaw. Note that this does not include subjective content complaints. We will immediately make the necessary correction online, and print a correction box in the following issue if deemed necessary.


The University section covers all Miami-related happenings, both on and off campus. Coverage includes student body government and the administration, alumni and regional campus affairs and all other news concerning the university community.


The Community section keeps Oxford residents informed about their town and provides students a window to what’s happening outside the Miami Bubble. This includes local, national and global news.


The Opinion Section is where we let you do the talking. It’s a place for The Miami Student Editorial Board to take a stand on issues, but also allows the community to voice their opinions through columns, letters to the editor and open forum discussions.
