The Western Herald is the student newspaper of Western Michigan University, in Kalamazoo, Michigan. It began printing in 1916.[1] The paper was known as the Western Normal Herald from 1916–27.[2]

The Western Herald is different from many student newspapers because it does not receive university funding. During the fall and winter semesters the Herald goes to print two days a week (Monday and Thursday) and typically contains 8–14 pages each day. The Herald follows a limited printing schedule during the two summer academic terms. On Thursday the Herald also prints the Weekend Scene, an arts and entertainment guide for the Kalamazoo area.[3]

The Western Herald provides news about the students, campus events and activities, as well as sporting events, opinion sections, and local culture and politics.
