We act as the voice of the students here at UHCL. As journalists, we must act in the best interest of the students who put their trust in us to continue telling the stories they need to know.

Since its founding in 1975, UH-Clear Lake's student newspaper has played an active role in the life of the university.

Our History

As a student newspaper, The Signal is primarily a medium of communication for students, and all students are encouraged to participate in this communication. Consistent with the shared governance philosophy of this university, it is The Signal’s goal to provide a forum to which all constituents of the university community have access.

At a secondary level, The Signal provides an opportunity for students to gain expertise in journalistic writing, editing, photography, videography, social media, graphic design, web development and audience engagement. 

The countless hours I spent in the newsroom, the laughs shared with coworkers and the experiences that altered what I believed I was capable of, will forever be a memorable part of my journey.
