ABOUT THE

The Rival was created in 2014 as a response to filtered and outdated traditional campus publications. In just a year The Rival grew to a staff of 50 students, received nearly half a million page views, and placed fourth in the largest collegiate business plan competition in the country. Now, The Rival is revolutionizing student news and entertainment by connecting colleges and student voices across schools like never before. Formerly DC-based, the Rival’s multi-campus expansion now allows students all over the country to speak freely about their student experiences and college culture, explore creative styles, and share ideas in a whole new way.
