The Earlham College student newspaper has been active since 1911. The first weekly newspaper was named the Earlham Press, using that name until 1926 when it was renamed the Quaker Quill. The Quill was of short duration, only holding this name until 1931. The new student newspaper was dubbed “The Earlham Post.” This name lasted for more than fifty years, not changing its name again until 1986, when it became known as the “The Earlham Word”, or just “The Word”.

The student newspaper includes articles about Earlham's sports teams, important dates, guest speakers, and the crime beat. It is deeply involved in documenting the college's happenings, helping keep both the Earlham and Richmond community informed. In more recent years it has been entirely online with no print edition.
