Daily Egyptian

Illinois colleges and universities might not be hosting in-person classes, but many school newspapers are still operating.


The Daily Egyptian says SIU's Office of Internal Audit, Compliance and Ethics has opened two investigations related to the hirings of Chancellor Carlo Montemagno's daughter and son-in-law.

The Northern Illinois University student newspaper will begin receiving student fees in order to save the student-operated Northern Star. According to an editorial published this week, the newspaper received student fees prior to 1996 but opted out due to its financial position at that time.

SIU's President says now that Illinois has a budget, SIUC will no longer have to borrow from SIUE.

WSIU's Jennifer Fuller talks with Daily Egyptian Faculty Advisor Bill Recktenwald about the paper's legacy, as the student-produced newspaper turns 100 years old.

SIU Carbondale’s student newspaper marks a milestone today – as this issue is the last to be printed on campus.


The Southern Illinois University system's new president says there's a deal to spare the Carbondale campus' financially troubled student newspaper.
And there's a prospect Illinois taxpayers may pitch in.

SIU's President is transferring more than $50,000 to The Daily Egyptian, in an effort to keep the student newspaper running for the short term.
