Journalism Department

Students with facultyOhlone's journalism program has a long and distinguished history. Vol. 1, No. 1 of Ohlone's first student newspaper, then named the Saints' Herald, was published Nov. 2, 1967. At that time, Ohlone was housed in a former convent on Washington Boulevard. Ohlone's present campus did not open until the mid- 1970s, so, in a sense, there was a campus newspaper even before there was a campus. Learn more about Ohlone College's Journalism Department.
