Welcome to St. Edward’s University, new Hilltoppers!

This is your campus newspaper: Hilltop Views. It is your source for breaking news and features about St. Edward’s and the surrounding community. There are two versions of Hilltop Views — the print edition you are reading right now, which will come out every Wednesday, and the online edition where you can find the same stories plus web exclusive content.

You can read about the week’s biggest stories in “News;” everything you need to know about Austin’s entertainment in “Life & Arts;” updates on the Hilltopper teams in “Sports;” and our writers’ educated opinions in “Viewpoints.”

As editors of Hilltop Views, we have dedicated a huge chunk of our college careers to journalism, and we hope that you read the newspaper and are possibly motivated to join us in delivering news on the hilltop.

If you are interested in working for us, go like Hilltop Views on Facebook and follow us on Twitter @HilltopViews for updates on our first meeting. 

Now, we hope you enjoy the rest of this special orientation issue of Hilltop Views and that you are excited for the next four years. Don’t forget to pick up the newest issue every Wednesday and visit our website.

See you around the Hilltop!
