Haigazian Herald

The Haigazian Herald, HU’s student produced newspaper, publishes articles by students, faculty, staff, as well as different expert guest articles.

The topics included cover a broad range, from reporting about HU events, to topics of general concern, to random global issues, to creative writing and poetry. Herald also publishes pieces submitted by HU Alumni.

Basically, anyone can submit articles for print, and if they meet the paper’s standards, then we’ll definitely accept them, regardless of whether the “submitter” is a Haigazian Herald staff member or not; you actually don’t even have to be a student!

Due to increasing demand by community members, and especially overseas alums, issues of the Herald are available online now. Simply click on the issue you want, and you’ll have a PDF version of it.

Student Handbook

Student Life issues the Student Handbook. It is a handy guideline for academic and administrative info, including the academic calendar, student services and facilities, rules and regulations, student behavior and conduct matters as well as details of the usage of the libraries, and the labs. It has a detailed section on financial aid too.

The Student Handbook includes a brief description of the history, scope and objectives and achievements as well as the structure of the University’s Clubs, Societies and Teams, and their (membership) terms. It highlights the setup of Student Life and student governance at Haigazian University, the Student Life Committee and the Student Life Board.

To make it more user friendly and practical, Student Life has included a diary for notes and a number of pictures of various co-curricular activities.
