Students, faculty and staff have been reading news and opinion in the Andersonian since 1947. Editors, typefaces, formats and paper stocks have changed over the years, but the Andersonian has remained an important part of campus life.

To learn more about how the Andersonian came into being and what it was like in its early years, read this interview with Dr. Kenneth Hall, the newspaper’s founding editor.
