The purpose of the Herald is to inform the HWS community of campus, community, national, international, sports, and health news. The Herald also serves as an outlet for free speech through our opinions section, which will always feature the respectful, yet uncensored views of students, professors, and staff.
The Herald has a long history that mirrors that of the Colleges. The Herald’s initial manifestation was as the Hobart Herald, which was established as a monthly student-run publication in 1879. In 1908, William Smith College was founded and the college started their own paper, called the Twig on November 1, 1941. The two papers, therefore, coexisted until April 11, 1942, when the last issue of the Twig appeared, and when the publication merged with the Hobart Herald to create today’s Herald. The Herald still maintains its status as a student-run newspaper, faithfully reporting the news and issues of the day for more than 130 years.
The Herald includes sections on Arts & Entertainment, Campus Happenings, News, Sports & Health, and Opinions.
