General Information

Established in 1968 by the undergraduate students of Case Western Reserve University, The Observer is an award-winning newspaper with a circulation of 5000. As a weekly newspaper, The Observer strives to represent the student body by providing coverage on the latest news happenings, concerts, entertainment reviews, and sporting events.

Our team consists of 18 senior staff members, selected the previous spring, and a variable number of staff reporters and columnists. Twelve senior staff members make up the editorial board, which meets once per week to critique the latest issue and discuss ideas for the upcoming issue.

Every Wednesday from noon until midnight, the staff works together to design and edit a newspaper. On Thursday, the completed edition is sent to the printer and new content is uploaded to the Observer website. The Observer in print form is distributed to various buildings on campus on Friday morning.
