About The Linfield Review
Founded in 1896, The Linfield Review is one of the oldest college newspapers in the Pacific Northwest. The newspaper traces its history to the first issue of “The Review,” published January 1896 when the college was called McMinnville College. On Jan. 11, 1922, McMinnville College became Linfield College because of a $250,000 gift from Mrs. Frances Eleanor Ross Linfield. To commemorate the change to the college, the newspaper added to its title to become The Linfield Review. The Review has a cherished tradition of journalistic integrity and excellence and counts numerous national and local awards to it name. One hundred and fifteen years after its founding, having grown from a newspaper published monthly and edited by the college’s president to a weekly put together entirely by students, The Linfield Review continues to stand by its mission of being a vehicle for free expression.

The Linfield Review is produced by a dedicated student staff. Most of the reporters are freshmen and sophomores, while the editorial staff is, with few exceptions, composed of upperclassmen.
The Linfield Review publishes every other Monday during the academic year and serves the communities of Linfield College and McMinnville, Ore. The Review also publishes several special-occasion issues every year, including The Back-To-School issue, Commencement issue and The Review Renter’s Guide issue.
The Linfield Review website, thelinfieldreview.com, is developed and run by editorial staff members.

Joining The Linfield Review
Any member of the Linfield College community can join the Review’s staff. Generally, new staffers start off covering general news, sports and cultural events; taking photos; creating graphics; or selling ads. Normally, the editorial staff is hired at the end of each academic year, so staff positions are not available. However, if a spot opens up, the Review welcomes staffers from all years and majors – opportunities are always available.
