Founded in 1887, The Cento is the sole student newspaper for the Centre community. The newspaper recently became an online newspaper in 2015 and its content is drawn into The Buzz, USA Today’s College Section.

Each year we publish 10 issues and distribute them to fourteen on-campus locations. These papers reach around 1,400 students and  500 members of the faculty and staff, many of who live in the Danville area.

The Cento also has a strong subscription base with issues of the paper reaching over 150 Centre alumni, parents, and the entire Board of Trustees.
