The Brookhaven Courier, a designated public forum, is published as the campus newspaper.

Some of our students have gone on to study work in college newspapers including SMU, TWU, UNT UT Arlington, UT Austin, Baylor and Texas State. Other students have worked for The Dallas Morning News, the Dallas Observer, Dallas Voice, Central Track and the Denton Record-Chronicle.
