George Mason’s student newspaper, Broadside, is the ninth-best student newspaper in the nation, according to the current edition of Princeton Review. The Review devises its rankings by polling more than 100,000 college students who offer opinions on everything collegiate, from classes to the cafeteria, from graduate schools to Greek life.

According to a report from the Dailyillini, the independent student newspaper of the University of Illinois, students were queried via online surveys and 100,158 were submitted, “with about 300 students responding from each of the 345 colleges featured.”

The University of Minnesota Twin Cities’ The Minnesota Daily was number one in the poll, and Broadside topped schools such as the University of California at Berkeley, the University of Wisconsin at Madison, and the University of Texas at Austin.

“This is wonderful recognition for our paper and a tribute to the hard work that our students put into making Broadside the best it can possibly be,” says Kathryn Mangus, Broadside’s faculty advisor. “It’s also a testament to the support we have received from the administration.”
