About Us

Over 17,000 students attend the University of Massachusetts Boston, and every day during the semester, there are multiple events that draw students out of their classrooms and into public discourse at our university. Our job as the student newspaper is to shape, critique, and encourage this discourse. We interview the scientists, authors, and artists that come on campus regularly.

We search for interesting discussions, studies, and people on campus, and highlight them for our community. At our best, we are the first place that students, staff, and faculty turn to when they want to find out what's going on at UMass Boston, what to do between classes, how to connect with clubs and centers, and what local businesses are worth checking out over the weekends. The Mass Media publishes a weekly print edition and posts stories online on a rolling basis.
