Mission statement

The mission of The Lasso is to inform, educate and entertain the TWU community through interesting, thought-provoking, well-written and well-researched articles and opinion pieces, interesting and relevant graphics and photography, and complete and balanced coverage of the events and issues affecting TWU and its students, faculty, staff, alumni, and surrounding community.


We seek to be transparent, accountable, and honest. We look to the Society of Professional Journalists Code of Ethics to guide us in making ethical decisions as responsible journalists.
