DePauw has a strong and storied history of an influential and active student media.
DePauw's student-managed newspaper, radio station and TV station have been fertile training grounds for hundreds of student journalists each year.
Indiana's oldest college newspaper, The DePauw, has regularly been named the state's best college newspaper by the Indiana Collegiate Press Association.
