The Griffin is Canisius College's very own student-run newspaper and oldest club. Founded in 1933,The Griffin publishes a print newspaper most Fridays during the semester in order to keep students, faculty, staff, and members of the wider community informed on campus news and events.


Comprised of four sections - News, Features, Opinion, and Sports - The Griffin has a spot for everyone, even if you've never written before. We also have non-writing options in newspaper layout, photography and podcasting! Any undergraduate student can join and contribute as much or as little as they want.


Look out for our papers on racks around campus, or view them here, on Friday mornings. Check us out on Instagram @thecanisiusgriffin and on Twitter @CanisiusGriffin.
