The Beacon


The Beacon William Paterson’s Official Student-Run Publication

Since 1936 The Beacon’s mission is to provide an equal access forum for students to communicate, debate and discuss a spectrum of issues that encourage intellectual growth, the discovery of new ideas, and enlightenment.

The Beacon seeks to promote and challenge ideologies, explain life experiences, and offer alternative schools of thought for the acquisition of wisdom. The Beacon’s content represents a tapestry of diverse individuals publishing to stimulate critical thinking and a better understanding of the world, its people, and their various views. The Beacon encourages fresh and mature minds alike to express their views, both minority and majority in nature, without obstacles of free speech.

By students, for the world.
