About Us

Of the students

As De La Salle University’s official student publication, The LaSallian is accountable to the students.

By the students

The LaSallian, as a completely student-run publication, is a training ground for professional, competent, and responsible journalists.

For the students

Through its news, stories, photographs, illustrations, and perspectives, The LaSallian represents and fights for the rights and welfare of the students.

Writing Sections


The University section is The LaSallian‘s news arm, serving as a gatherer, amplifier, and defender of truth within and beyond the Animo realm. From covering news and events to shedding light on DLSU and national issues through in-depth features and commentaries, expect the University section to be there when stories happen.


Grounded in Filipino culture and society, the Menagerie is the publication’s features section that delves into the mundane and the peculiar. We write about stories of people and phenomena celebrated and forgotten, from the margins of society and at the center of communities. Our stories strive to provide readers with a critical understanding of the news information we consume. 


The LaSallian‘s Sports writers go beyond the eye of the casual fan, diving deeper into the story behind collegiate and national sports alike. We help bring the La Salle community closer to the action and the grind of the teams and athletes who proudly represent the Green and White.


Vanguard inspires curiosity and connects everyday people with the brightest minds in science. But apart from reporting the wonders, hypotheses, and data, we uphold the duty to examine the role of money and politics in science, review science-related public policies, and dissect the murky underbelly of the field.

Multimedia & Technical Sections


Intermedia is the youngest section that aims to expand inquisitive campus journalism through video and animation. We are the people behind the cameras, video timelines, and animations meticulously working to provide an audiovisual experience of the life stories we need to tell and questions we get to raise.


Photo is the section with the masters of visual storytelling, capturing life’s relevant moments through our camera lenses. We provide visuals for the publication’s articles, news, events, and sports coverages, as swift as the blink of an eye.

Art & Graphics

Art & Graphics is the creative heart of the publication that breathes life into complex stories through the visual mastery of colors and line work. This section takes on the responsibility of crafting captivating visuals for articles, event highlights, comics, and editorial cartoons. 


Layout combines creativity and precision to ensure that news is presented in an informative, engaging, and accessible way. The section enhances the publication’s delivery of information through eye-catching visuals and well-structured layouts.


The Web section, composed of copywriters, designers, and developers, is at the forefront of the publication’s digital presence. They are the creative architects behind our content strategy, while also skillfully designing and developing websites to elevate the storytelling experience.
