Published weekly since 1925, The Crusader is the official student newspaper of the College of the Holy Cross. Our mission is to serve the Holy Cross community not only as a local news source, but also as an outlet for student voices.

The Crusader is a nonprofit and nonpartisan publication, and is run entirely by students. Submissions by students and employees of the College alike are welcomed and encouraged. All submissions may be edited for content, and must be received by the Sunday prior to publication. Submissions may be published in print or online. The Crusader reserves the right not to publish any letter or content deemed objectionable or which does not meet the editorial standards of the newspaper. Letters may be mailed, e-mailed, or brought to The Crusader office in Hogan Campus Center Room 235. The opinions expressed within the newspaper are not necessarily those of the College of the Holy Cross.

We welcome all website visitors to contact us at crusader@g.holycross.edu with any inquiries. Current members of the student body are particularly encouraged to contact us to learn about opportunities to join The Crusader editorial team.
