About The Buzz

The Buzz is the official, student-run newspaper of St. Ambrose University and governed by the SAU Publications Board. In October 2020, The Buzz transitioned from a newsprint to digital format. Stories reside at “The Hive” which is a collection of student generated stories encompassing all media from the SAU Department of Communication.

The monthly e-editions of The Buzz are sent electronically to faculty, staff, students as well as alumni and friends of the St. Ambrose Community who choose to subscribe.

The newspaper covers a variety of topics including campus news and events, sports, and feature stories.

There are several opportunities for all students – regardless of major – to gain experience in writing, layout, editing, and photography.

Staff meetings are typically every Wednesday at 12 p.m., although meeting times are subject to change.

The Buzz fulfills the COMM 332 Print News Practicum course requirement for multimedia journalism majors and minors and would also satisfy non-major electives for all students. You can take up to six credits total while working on the paper.
