The Oredigger Student Newspaper published its first issue in 1920. Since then, the paper has provided a unique forum for students on campus. Over the last ten years, however, the Oredigger has faced some of the same problems that have plagued national papers. Specifically, advertising revenue for the paper has decreased by over 50% since 2009. On top of this, the level of financial support from the school has decreased. In 2009, the paper received approximately $40,000 from the school. Last year, we received just $32,655 during the allocation process.
