About The Herald

The Herald is a public forum whose content is written for the Arkansas State University community.

Student editors of The Herald have the authority to make all content decisions without censorship or advance approval.

New issues of The Herald are published on Mondays and Thursdays during the fall and spring semesters. Print copies are distributed around the Jonesboro campus. Breaking news is posted online at this location as it occurs.

The Herald's content is normally written by students. The "Our View" section represents the opinions of the editorial staff. Columns, letters to the editor, cartoons and other content on the opinion page are the views of the author, and do not necessarily represent the opinion of The Herald or Arkansas State University.

The Herald office is located in room 224 of the Communications Building on the Jonesboro campus.


Archived content from 2000 to present is available online by searching for keywords or dates in the search bar at the top of each page. Content from 1996 to 2000 is available on the ASU College of Communications archive.
