We are The Tulane Hullabaloo, a self-funded student newspaper established in 1905 as the eyes and ears of the Tulane community. With 4,000 weekly print issues, 20,000+ monthly website views, and 17,000+ social media followers, The Hullabaloo has a lot of people counting on us for accurate and engaging coverage. We aim not only to publish content that impacts our readers but to provide our writers with first-hand journalism experience. The Hullabaloo holds frequent training sessions, meets with journalism professionals and attends an annual journalism conference. Students develop skills in writing, editing, photography, social media, advertising, leadership and more. This training and effort results in an award-winning paper -- The Hullabaloo has won nine Pacemakers (the Pulitzer of college journalism) since 1980.
Anything you give will help us extend our digital reach, continue providing print issues to the community, and help us create new training and education programs for our members.
Printing a newspaper, maintaining our web presence and educating our staff come at a steep price. Although Tulane provides The Hullabaloo with office space and other support, is it up to our student business managers to sell advertisements each week to cover the costs of printing, training, our website and more. With print media revenues falling, it has become harder for the paper to keep going.
