The Daily Eastern News

The Daily Eastern News, a newspaper published Monday through Friday during fall and spring semesters and Tuesdays and Thursdays during the summer terms, is edited and produced by students. Journalism faculty serve as advisers, but the students make all content decisions.

Eastern is one of the smallest universities in the country with a daily newspaper. This insures ample opportunity to work under the stresses of real life deadlines. The DEN maintains and runs its own Goss Printing Press, located across the hall from the newsroom.

Contact Dr. Joe Gisondi at or 217-581-7143, or Buzzard 1835, to get involved at the DEN.


The Warbler

The Warbler is the university yearbook. At Eastern, a yearbook has been continuously published since 1919. Each year every full-time student receives a yearbook. Working out of the newsroom of The Daily Eastern News, The Warbler also is created on a computer pagination system which provides digital files that can be sent directly to the printer. The all-color yearbook serves as an excellent place for students to put their new editorial, graphic design and photography skills to work.

Mr. Greg Bilbrey is the faculty advisor for The Warbler. Contact him at, or in Buzzard 1831.
