The NORSUnian, commonly known as TN, is the official weekly student publication of Negros Oriental State University (formerly Central Visayas Polytechnic College) located in Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental, Philippines. The NORSUnian is one of the three (3) acclaimed student publications in the Philippines which comes out weekly together with The Philippine Collegian of the University of the Philippines in Metro Manila, and The Weekly Sillimanian of Silliman University in Dumaguete City.
Formerly known as The Edutech, the publication has grown in number and coverage with 14 writers and 4 editors, with 17 other members including layout artists and web page designers.
In its quest to write and fight for students (“We write for you. We fight for you.” -TN dogma), The NORSUnian has not only published stories about in-campus activities, but also columns and opinion articles on national, local and societal issues geared toward positive transformation of the country.
The NORSUnian was formerly known as The Edutech, a monthly student paper in 1983. As it evolved, several changes were made by the administration of Dr. Henry A. Sojor, and since the conversion of Central Visayas Polytechnic College to Negros Oriental State University, the school paper was then published on a weekly basis, which is run by more or less 30 members of the editorial staff.
The previous Editors-in-Chief were; Jessica Cornella, Junrell Calunod, Jeremiah It-it, Maria Margarita Narvasa, Kenneth B. Pael, Rolyn Jane P. Catanus, Jessie P. Dolia, Joeylen A. de la Cruz, Ariel B. Dizon, Francis Ivan G. Ho, Maria Dominique P. Ferrolino, and Caryl J. Sapepe.
