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 PLNU's creative arts journal, published every spring, that seeks to provide intellectual engagement and creative exploration. Students are encouraged to submit art, film, music, non-fiction, photography, and poetry works for publication.

The Mariner

The Mariner, PLNU's annual yearbook, comes out every spring. Senior ads for the 2019-2020 yearbook can be purchased through The Yearbook Company.

Loma Beat

Loma Beat, PLNU's online news source, combines the efforts of Point TV, The Point, Point Radio, Driftwood, and The Mariner.
