About the Emory Wheel

The Emory Wheel was founded in 1919 and is the only independent, student-run newspaper of Emory University. The Wheel publishes weekly on Wednesdays during the academic year, except during University holidays and scheduled publication intermissions.

Our paper is financially and editorially independent from the University. All of its content is generated by the Wheel’s more than 100 student staff members and contributing writers, and its printing costs are covered by profits from self-generated advertising sales.

The Wheel is proud to have gained recognition on both regional and national levels. We have won more than 100 awards from regional and national organizations including the Society of Professional Journalists.

A single copy of the Wheel is free of charge. To purchase additional copies, please contact the Business and Advertising Office. Copies of the paper are delivered throughout campus.

The Wheel reserves the rights to all content as it appears in these pages, and permission to reproduce material must be granted by the Editor-in-Chief.

The Editor-in-Chief is chosen in February through a general election of the newspaper’s staff. An Editor-in-Chief’s term lasts from the first issue after spring break to the last issue before spring break. Please contact the Wheel if you have further questions about the Wheel, its election process or its constitution.

For general comments, please email Editor-in-Chief Madison Bober at [email protected].

For inquiries about coverage or corrections, please email Executive Editor Isaiah Poritz at [email protected].
