Grand Valley Lanthorn

Grand Valley Lanthorn

The "Grand Valley Lanthorn" is the student-run newspaper for Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan. The "Lanthorn" is printed twice weekly, on Mondays and Thursdays during the academic year (Late August through April). It is not printed over academic breaks, and there are typically two issues over the summer months. The "Lanthorn" also operates its own website.

The "Lanthorn" has been involved in several controversies over its history, including a First Amendment lawsuit when the Ottawa County, Michigan sheriff's department closed down the newspaper in 1969 for printing several vulgar words. GVSU sued the sheriff, and eventually, the Michigan Attorney General sided with the university in order to settle the case before it reached a court.

The word "lanthorn" is derived from an old English word meaning "look out" or "lantern." The common pronunciation of the word on campus is lan-thorn, although the proper pronunciation is lant-horn.
