The South Texan Mission

The South Texan student newspaper is dedicated to producing a weekly student newspaper to provide information on campus news, entertainment, opinions, lifestyles, and sports.

Our web site’s mission is to provide this information and more through online media for those who are or are not electronically savvy. Our web site compliments our weekly student newspaper by allowing the Texas A&M University-Kingsville community and the Kingsville community to receive the most updated information about our university.

The South Texan student newspaper is an award-winning weekly student publication produced by students for students of Texas A&M University-Kingsville. It has been in operation since 1925 and during that time it has produced a list of distinguished journalists who have gone onto work professionally throughout the state and nation.

Today, more than 25 former South Texan staff from the past 25 years are working professionally in area publications such as the Corpus Christi Caller-Times, the San Antonio Express-News, and the Beaumont Enterprise, to name a few.
