The Yellow Jacket


The Yellow Jacket Newspaper is a small, student-led organization at Randolph-Macon College. We are committed to uplifting student voices on campus and growing the presence of student journalism at a local liberal arts college. We believe that ethical and authentic media coverage is important to every community, no matter its size.

The COVID-19 pandemic pushed the YJ Newspaper into a hiatus in March 2020. We chose to take this not as the ruinous blow it could have been, but as an opportunity to build a better version of YJ News: one with a renewed commitment to the principles of quality journalism and engaged in ongoing and responsive conversation with the community we serve. Our team came together to revive the paper in service of our mission, and we are thrilled to finally share the outcome with our community: a brand-new website and quality local news coverage for years to come.
