Barnard Bulletin
The Barnard Bulletin was founded in 1901 as a weekly newspaper, and today is the oldest continuously published voice on a women's college campus in the United States, according to its own accounts. The Bulletin historically covered events on campus, all aspects of student life, affairs of Barnard's administration and the Board of Trustees, and relations with Columbia. At the time of its launch, Barnard was one of only a few colleges in the country to print a weekly newspaper. For financial reasons--the Bulletin had to cease publication for a semester in 2002 due to outstanding debts--it switched to a biweekly schedule in 2007 and to a monthly schedule in fall 2009. It has also shifted gradually from a traditional newspaper design, printed on newsprint, to a more features-oriented, glossy-paged magazine format.
