About Us

The Wooster Voice is a student-run publication. It has existed in one form or another since 1883, making it one of the oldest student newspapers in America.

We have two editors-in-chief every year, and some years we have a managing editor. The College of Wooster’s Publications Committee, made up of faculty and members of SGA and Campus Council, selects these editors annually. Our editorial board, which is hired by the editors-in-chief, consists of the section editors — there are usually two editors per section (News, Viewpoints, Features, A&E, Sports). We meet Thursdays to decide on story lists, produce stories over the weekend, and then layout the newspaper on Tuesday nights starting at 4 p.m.

Our faculty adviser is Lynette Mattson, assistant director of the Writing Center.

We work to serve the students of The College of Wooster by providing news and human interest stories about the campus and the larger community. If you’d like to suggest ways we can accomplish that goal more effectively, please email the editors-in-chief, Desi LaPoole (dlapoole20@wooster.edu) and Waverly Hart (whart20@wooster.edu).

Thank you for your interest in The Wooster Voice.
