About us

We at The Torch believe in the power of information to change the world and our communities. Our student staff strive to uphold the ethics of journalism and produce engaging content. The Torch has an average circulation of over 2,000 print editions published weekly and content published online throughout the week.


We at The Torch believe that information empowers people to improve themselves and their community. Through easy access to timely, relevant, and engaging stories, we provide a public service to our campus and serve as a public forum for the community to discuss relevant issues. As a commuter campus, our readers rely on us to connect them to the knowledge they will need to navigate life as a student, among their many other responsibilities.
