Hilltop Views


Hilltop Views is a bi-weekly student newspaper published by the School of Humanities and serving the community of St. Edward’s University. The student newspaper was first published in 1888, and has taken many forms over the years. Our current name, Hilltop Views, was first published on February 16, 1987.

Over the decades, Hilltop Views has become an award-winning publication for it’s work online and in print. Though the physical design of each issue has continued to evolve with the work of various editorial teams, one thing remains the same: Hilltop Views is a publication made by the students of St. Edward’s University for the students of St. Edward’s University. Our core missions include informing and entertaining the St. Edward’s University community as well as giving readers a source they can trust and rely on.

Hilltop Views’ coverage extends beyond campus and into the bustling life of Austin, Texas, the city in which St. Edward’s University is embedded in. Reporters dig deep into issues, events and conversations that surround our communities and convey those topics in writing as well as quality images. Our “News” section is comprised of current, newsworthy events taking place both on and off campus. Our “Sports” section focuses on SEU Athletics and the personal and athletic lives our student athletes experience while attending St. Edward’s University. Our “Life & Arts” section brings entertainment and other conversations to our publication. This section also focuses on events that bring creative minds together. Finally, our “Viewpoints” section, aptly named after our publication’s current title, focuses on expanding relevant conversations effecting our students both on and off campus.

Hilltop Views offers many opportunities for student journalists, photographers and designers to receive vital newsroom experience that will prepare them for the industry outside of college. We believe this preparation will give students the chance to hone their skills, find their own voice, and make strides in their careers.
