We are The Argo and we exist for Stockton University
A Bit About Us
The Argo was founded in 1971 as the independent student newspaper of the college. It operates as an independent, non-profit corporation, staffed by students and managed by an external Board of Directors. Each year it contracts with the college for subscription purposes. Funds to pay staff, purchase insurance, office supplies and equipment, and travel are generally raised through the selling of advertisements. The publishing schedule has varied over the years, but current schedules include 24 editions during the academic year and one summer issue aimed at new students.
The Argo welcomes all letters opinions, photographs, cartoons, articles, or other media from the general public; however, The Argo has the right to edit and either grant or deny publication of such media as it sees fit. With the exception of material sourced from a social media profile, the public domain, or any source where the rights to the media are restricted, such submissions become the property of The Argo.
