About Washington Square News:

Washington Square News is run by undergraduates with a diverse array of interests, including reporting, writing, editing, coding, photography, video production, design, illustration, and business. WSN strives to serve its readers daily with the most relevant information about the university and student life. The paper’s most important mission is to hold administration at NYU accountable and advocate for the student body. As the largest private university in the US, it’s important NYU has a student newspaper that checks those in power and makes sure the student voice is never ignored.

Unfortunately, WSN isn’t exempt from the volatility facing the journalism industry. Every semester seems like a struggle to keep the paper alive and pay its staff. Your ticket purchase will help keep independent journalism alive on NYU’s campus.

This fundraising event is co-sponsored by Washington Square News and the NYU Journalism Institute.
