About the Daily Bruin

Since 1919, The Daily Bruin has served as UCLA’s main campus newspaper for students and members of the university. The paper has published each school day of the year since the mid-1920s, with an increasing emphasis on digital news.

The Daily Bruin is a resource to the students, faculty, staff and community members of UCLA and Westwood. The paper offers local insight and coverage of events, trends and important topics on campus every day it publishes.

In Kerckhoff 118, the Daily Bruin’s central-campus office, about 500 students work in 17 editorial sections to produce the paper each day. Students serve as the paper’s editors, reporters, photographers, video journalists, designers and programmers. An editorial board composed of UCLA students offers a Daily Bruin perspective on matters concerning students.

About 9,000 copies of each daily print issue are distributed at dozens of locations across UCLA. The paper’s online materials and social media reach digital readers worldwide over the course of the academic year.

In addition to daily news, the Daily Bruin runs PRIME, a quarterly culture and lifestyle magazine, and the Stack, a data journalism blog providing a quantitative look at the news. The Daily Bruin also founded and operates bruinwalk.com, UCLA’s professor and apartment review website. 

Because UCLA does not have a journalism major or school, the Daily Bruin serves as an important training ground for young journalists. Daily Bruin alumni have worked at many top news organizations, including the New York Times, National Public Radio, BBC and the Washington Post. Bruin alumni have gone on to receive several Pulitzer Prizes and a Nobel Peace Prize.

The Bruin also regularly performs strongly in national and local college media competitions, taking home top honors from the Associated Collegiate Press, the Society of Professional Journalists, the College Media Association, the California Newspaper Publishers Association and the California College Media Association.
