The Mindanao Varsitarian is the official student publication of the University. It devotes itself mainly to news, poems and opinions, comments and critiques about the University studentry as well as other sectors of the University. The Varsitarian has served as the Voice of the studentry and as training ground for students in objective journalism and responsible leadership.
The editorial staff is carefully chosen on the basis of an examination given during the early part of the first semester of each school year. Some colleges come up with their own newsletter which serves as outlets for the literal talents of their students. Students on all levels are enjoined to send their literary outputs for publication in the Varsitarian or the newsletter.
