About Us

The Brandeis Hoot was established in 2005 as a community newspaper written for, by and about the members of the Brandeis community. Since the paper’s founding, the Hoot’s growth as a newspaper – doubling in size since its inception – reflects its immediate influence on the Brandeis community. Articles from The Hoot are read worldwide and have been cited by national media outlets including The New York Times, The Boston Globe and National Public Radio.

The Hoot publishes every Friday during the semester and distributes the newspaper throughout the Brandeis campus and Waltham area.

Interested in Joining?

The Hoot was established in 2005 because students felt that Brandeis needed a community newspaper written about, by and for the members of the Brandeis community. We want you to join that effort. Stop by the Brandeis Media Coalition office on a Thursday evening or speak to one of our editors about contributing to The Hoot.
