El Leñador is the student-run, bilingual English/Spanish newspaper serving the Latino community on campus and in Humboldt County. Founded by Cal Poly Humboldt journalism students in 2013, the monthly newspaper has since received numerous awards, including the best non-weekly student newspaper in the state by the California College Media Association. Through their reporting, student staff members create more social, political and cultural diversity in local media. The staff work as writers, photographers, editors, copy translators, and page designers. Students do not need to be bilingual to participate.
Andrea Juarez is the newspaper's faculty adviser.
