Student News Wire

The Collegiate Commons is only one small newspaper. More than likely, you are interested in more parts of the state of Indiana and the nation that we do not have the resources to cover. That is why we decided to compile the RSS feeds of several Indiana-based (as well as a few national) publications. Since most of those listed below are also smaller student publications, the Indiana Daily Student and The Exponent are also good resources, as they are the two largest student publications in the state. For historical matters, feel free to peruse the Indianapolis Student Archives and the IU Onomatopoeia Archives.

We are not affiliated with any of the following except for The American Commons. Please let us know if you have any suggestions on student publications to add from other universities.
