Keep The Torch Lit

The Torch is St. John’s University’s only award-winning independent student newspaper. It is a weekly newspaper with five sections, and has been around for 98 years.

The Torch is independent, meaning that it is funded only by donations and advertisements (not by the University or any single entity). This keeps us free from censorship. However, if people do not advertise in our newspaper or on our site, we print the paper at a deficit.

Prior to the pandemic, the Torch printed 500 copies of each issue, for about 9 issues a semester. In Fall 2019, the 97th editorial board inherited a debt they were not prepared for, and due to these circumstances, as well as health concerns raised by the pandemic, the Torch was forced to go digital last year.

The print newspaper is in high demand from students, faculty and administration -- we need your help to return to printing. Any donation helps to remove the debt to our printing company and keep the Torch in print for 100 years or more

Keep the Torch free. Keep the Torch independent. #KeeptheTorchLit.
