Mission Statement: The Lancer Link aims to inform the public with credible, thought-provoking information. We hope to inspire change through free expression and diverse perspectives. As student journalists, we strive to present all issues with fairness, impartiality, maturity and journalistic integrity.

Who We Are: The Lancer Link was formed originally in 2008 as a blog with a very small staff and limited content. Over the years, we have grown into a student-run staff comprised of nearly 50 members; including writers, artists, photographers, and a multimedia team. The staff ranges from freshman to seniors, and represents the voices of students from a variety of interests. Varsity athletes, band members, speech and debaters, thespians, and musicians all unite within this team, woven together by their dedication to producing meaningful, impactful, high-quality journalism.
