About Us

LIU Brooklyn's ONLY on-campus news source, since 1928.

Seawanhaka is the student newspaper of Long Island University Brooklyn.  Celebrating our 94th year of publication, Seawanhaka strives to bring fair and balanced news coverage to the Brooklyn campus community regarding a multitude of relevant subjects.


Seawanhaka has served LIU as a viable source of information, and a means to prepare Journalism and Media Arts majors for successful media careers. Seawanhaka’s student staff operates the newspaper under the tutelage of LIU’s first-rate journalism faculty members.


All reporting, editing and publishing is completed by a team of passionate undergraduates who believe in freedom of expression and of the press, afforded to us by the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment.

With an archive of 93 volumes, over 800 print and online issues, as well as an enhanced online presence, Seawanhaka continues to deliver the best coverage of local news, sports and the arts. Additionally, yet most importantly, Seawanhaka serves as a voice for the students of LIU Brooklyn.

Students of all majors are encouraged to join Seawanhaka to have the chance to publish work or polish writing skills. Staff meetings are on Tuesdays at 10:00AM on zoom.
