About The Cable

The Cable, the College of St. Scholastica’s student-run newspaper, is written, edited, and produced by students.

With a weekly circulation of 1,000 papers, the Cable delivers news to students, staff, faculty, and community members each Friday during the fall and spring semesters. The free paper is distributed throughout St. Scholastica’s Duluth campus and in area businesses.

Funding for the Cable comes from St. Scholastica’s Student Senate and the sale of advertisements.

The precursor to the Cable, the Scriptorium, published its first issue in January 1932 and continued until 1969. In 1977, the student newspaper returned to St. Scholastica as the Cable. Today, the Cable continues to release its print edition, but also excels at distributing news on its website and through social media.
