The Parthenon is the student newspaper of Marshall University based in Huntington, West Virginia. The paper began publication in 1898. It currently is published in print on Tuesdays and Fridays with content added daily online during the Fall and Spring semesters, and weekly during the Summer term (and not at all during breaks). It is distributed for "free" (it is funded by a fee added to tuition and by ad revenue) on the Huntington and South Charleston campuses. The Parthenon is also published online.
The newspaper generally covers campus news and news from the local area, only rarely mentioning national or world events.
