The Dominican community is fortunate to have its own award-winning newspaper, the Dominican Star, in print and online. The Star has editorial independence, which means the editor and editorial board make executive decisions regarding coverage and content.

"Working on the Star is the Dominican experience that I hold nearest to my heart. I found a passion for something I didn't know I had. I found within me, the ability to not only write for the Star, but to lead and transition it into something bigger that it was when I first started working on it."

The Dominican Star publishes a monthly newspaper, and posts those stories on its website, dominicanstar.com. The website also contains news stories that happen in between print publications and hosts a podcast, Dominican Speaks. Breaking news is covered via Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat (find us with the Snapcode at the left)

The Star seeks contributions from any major on campus, and regularly have fashion, nutrition, business, political science and natural sciences students contributing news stories, features stories, op-ed pieces, and more. Digital journalism majors may earn up to four credit hours of practicum credit for work on the Star.

"I think any student who finds any joy in writing, designing, photography or any type of content creation should join the Star. It is not only a newspaper, there is so much potential to make it bigger. Whether it is helping with social media, recording or coming up with ideas for the podcast, editing stories or page layout, photography, etc., you can find a place to put your skills and talent to work while gaining experience that will help you after graduation."

The Star's editorial adviser is Dr. CarrieLynn D. Reinhard, and its design adviser is Dave Pabellon.
