The Minerva Quest
The Minerva Quest, founded in 2015, is the independent, student-produced news source for the Minerva Schools at KGI community and all interested readers. Our utmost priority is to serve as an outlet for student voice by presenting and distinguishing facts from fiction and upholding ourselves and our peers to the values of journalistic integrity. We are effectively the student newspaper.
The Meekly, founded in 2016, is a student-based satirical news and media generator. We want to ridicule everything we can, in any form we can afford. Humor is a powerful tool in exposing flaws, creating discussion and forming communities, and the Meekly strives to be a part of Minerva’s flaws, discussion and community. We are open to any idea or creation, as long as it’s funny.
