The Triangle is Drexel University’s student-run, editorially and financially independent newspaper. Publishing every Friday during the normal school year and every other Friday during the summer term, The Triangle has continually been Drexel students’ source for campus news and voice for opinions.
The Triangle first appeared on campus in February 1926 under the direction of inaugural Editor-in-Chief Thomas T. Mather (’27) and with blessing and partial funding from then-President Kenneth G. Matheson and Drexel Institute’s Board of Trustees. Since then, The Triangle has been staffed by prominent members of the Drexel community, like former President and Myers Hall namesake Harold Myers (Business Manager, ’38), as well as celebrities including Chuck Barris (Columnist, ’53), John Gruber (Editor-in-Chief, ’90) and Albert Boscov (Sports Writer, ’48).
The Triangle has been nationally recognized with several Mark of Excellence awards from the Society of Professional Journalists in Editorial Writing, General Column Writing, and Sports Column Writing. The Triangle is also an accredited member of the Associated Collegiate Press and has won two National Pacemaker Awards.
Being independent from the University, all decisions regarding content and the paper’s growth are made by the Editor-in-Chief and the Editorial Board. The Triangle is currently home to over 70 student staff members who work year-round to produce professional-quality content with the aim of keeping Drexel students informed on the topics of news, arts and entertainment, and sports.
