The Ionian


The Ionian is Iona College’s official student-run newspaper.  The writers and editors work diligently to make sure that news around campus is covered accurately and thoroughly.  The staff produces a 16-page publication that hits newsstands every two weeks during the school year.  The paper comes out seven times every semester.  Each issue of the Ionian consists of the following sections: news, sports, features, arts & entertainment, and opinion.
