About the KO News

Our Mission Statement: The KO News serves to unify the KO community in the form of relevant articles that highlight marginalized voices, inspire civil discussion, and inform the public. We recognize that journalism is constantly evolving, and we are committed to changing with it. As a student-run publication, directly serving the student body is our priority, as well as providing a forum for free speech on campus. We vow to provide reliable, accurate information for readers and to be a reflection and celebration of the community as a whole.
