The Suffolk Journal is the undergraduate student newspaper of Suffolk University since 1936. The Journal prints a 12-page weekly newspaper, distributed across campus and Beacon Hill.

The Journal is currently located in the Sawyer building on Ashburton Place close to the Massachusetts State House. Previously, the office was located on the fifth floor of the Donahue building on Temple Street. Students across different majors help to put the paper together every week. Students are encouraged to send in their articles or opinion pieces.

Managed and produced entirely by undergraduate students, the Journal is committed to providing the best news coverage, both on and off campus, entertainment and sports stories, editorials and reviews.[1]

There are five sections of the paper: News is first and foremost, followed by World News, Arts & Culture, Opinion and Sports. The Journal is a member of the Associated Collegiate Press and has won multiple ACP awards through the years, including the Newspaper and Online Pacemaker awards. In March 2017, The Suffolk Journal was recognized by "Second Best Newspaper" in the country by the College Media Association in New York, New York at the annual conference in Times Square. The paper has also been recognized for its work by Suffolk's Student Government Association, winning awards such as Outstanding Student Organization. Staff members gain valuable experience in reporting, Associated Press style, copy editing, leadership, photography, page design, layout, production, business management, advertising, graphic design and public relations.[2]
