What are the PLNU campus publications?

The Point

The Point, PLNU's campus newspaper and website, is a student-run publication that keeps students, faculty, and staff up-to-date on campus happenings, from the latest on-campus events to the most compelling student stories. It provides a hands-on opportunity for students to inform the campus community. The paper has won several awards from the San Diego Society of Professional Journalists, the San Diego Press Club, the Evangelical Press Association, and the Associated Collegiate Press.

Driftwood is a compilation of the creative arts at Point Loma Nazarene University. Each fall semester, PLNU community members submit their best fiction, nonfiction, poetry, art, photography, music, and film for a rigorous review process by the journal's staff and final judging by outside experts in each genre host events to celebrate and promote the new issue. In the spring, the staff sell copies of the print journal and host an awards party. This student-run journal is edited, designed, curated, promoted, and sold by students especially for the entire PLNU community: students, alumni, faculty, staff, administrators, family members, San Diego neighbors, and—if you're reading this—you!
