About The GW Patriot
The GW Patriot is a non-partisan publication dedicated to promoting the free exchange of ideas in an environment where ideological diversity and serious debate are often lacking. As a journal of politics and culture, The Patriot challenges the orthodoxy of university life by exploiting topics often ignored under the status quo.
We are a publication of, by and for GW students. Our approach differs from other campus media outlets like GW Today and The GW Hatchet, who often serve as a mouthpiece for the school’s administration. We at The Patriot put students first. We defend individual freedom, intellectual diversity, and fundamental human rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We strive to inform, engage, and perhaps even amuse our readers. Our news team is independent and non-partisan. Editorially, we lean right of center or libertarian.
The Patriot has been at the heart of GW’s intellectual dialogue since its founding in 2002. Since 2009, The Patriot has rapidly expanded its influence, growing its readership threefold. In 2011, The Patriot won the Collegiate Network’s “Best New Media” Award.
We invite the active participation of any student or organization who shares our vision and would like to join our cause.
