About Us

The Setonian is the student-run news source of Seton Hill University. While the Setonian used to be printed in the traditional newspaper format, it has transitioned to a print magazine that is distributed across campus every month. In addition, the Setonian publishes regular content online. The Setonian staff consists of students majoring in many areas, not only new media journalism.

The Setonian has been around since 1919. Now, the staff publishes nine issues every year, including the May and December graduation magazines, which are twice as large as the regular 16 page issues.

The Setonian strives to inform the Seton Hill community by covering areas in news, lifestyle and entertainment, athletics, opinion, and awareness. The magazine staff is responsible for choosing its content, writing articles, copy-editing, and revision, along with using Adobe InDesign to lay out content for the print magazine. Students also collaborate with local businesses for advertising.

The Setonian can also be found on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Our staff at Seton Hill University works hard to get the news to our readers quickly and accurately. Thank you for your support!
