About Us


The Lumberjack: An NAU tradition since 1914. Jackcentral.org is produced and maintained by staff of The Lumberjack newspaper and the Media Innovation Center in the School of Communication at Northern Arizona University.

Our goal is to bring the news that is important to you through an expanding variety of different media, including broadcast, web and print. The Lumberjack has been a Flagstaff staple since its founding as The Pine in 1914. In 1946, students voted to change the name to The Lumberjack, and the newspaper has gradually evolved into its current form as a weekly publication.

The Lumberjack has been the recipient of a number of awards from the Society of Professional Journalists, the College Newspaper Business & Advertising Managers and the Arizona Newspapers Association.
