The first edition of a newspaper called The Parthenon appeared in November 1898, making it one of the oldest university newspapers in the country. A news magazine by another name predated it. The Parthenon is published Monday through Friday during the regular academic year, and on Thursdays in the summer. Due to budgetary constraints, beginning with the 2016 Fall semester, the newspaper is only published two days a week. Physical issues are printed on Tuesdays and Fridays. It is produced by student editors who are responsible for the news and editorial content. The paper consistently wins awards in competition with professional journalists and other university programs. The editor and managing editor are chosen by a media committee and they then choose their sixmember staff to serve as online, news, wire, sports, life, and photo editors. During the regular academic year, most of the stories printed in the paper are written by students taking reporting classes thus earning students the clippings to build a professional portfolio for internships and job interviews. Nonjournalism students participate by writing columns, reviews and letters to the editor, or by serving as a staff editor if they have the necessary experience. * The Parthenon contains color and black and white photographs.
