Welcome to dalgazette.com, the online home of the Dalhousie Gazette, the student-run newspaper of Dalhousie University and the oldest campus newspaper in North America.

The Gazette is run by and for the students of Halifax. Our writers, staff and editors include students and graduates of Dalhousie, the University of King’s College, Saint Mary’s, Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, and the Nova Scotia Community College.

We cover events both on the Dal campus, in Halifax, and in the Atlantic region. Last year, we covered such stories as the Student Day of Action protests, the 2011 Canada Games, gender issues on campus, food contracts, two CIS national championships, and more. We also include poetry, comics and fiction in our pages both online and in print.

Our staff are dedicated to mentoring and training aspiring writers and journalists while giving people a space to describe and reflect on their own campus. We publish strong writing, passionate writing and important writing within the limits of journalistic integrity and ethics.

The Dalhousie Gazette is distributed to over 200 locations around Halifax every Friday morning. We hold weekly contributor’s meetings in our office, located in room 312 of the Student Union Building, every Monday night at 5:30 p.m.
