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 its name. 115 years after its founding, having grown from a newspaper published monthly and edited by the college’s president to a fully-online publication 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 all of its work digitally to The Linfield Review news site as well on social media. In fall 2019 the newspaper shifted from printing every other Monday during the academic year to being online only. The decision was made to become a better resource to the entire Linfield community and for the sustainability of the newspaper.
The Linfield Review website,, is developed and run by editorial staff members.

The Linfield Review, though mainly subsidized through student funds, pays for promotion and stipends via advertisement revenue. For more information, please visit the Advertise in the Review page or contact Maddie Loverich, editor-in-chief, at [email protected].
