About

The Collegian is the official newspaper of Saint Mary’s College in Moraga, California. We report on campus news and events, cultural activities around the San Francisco Bay Area, opinions of all topics near and far, and athletic events that are important to the Saint Mary’s community.

Founded in 1903 when Saint Mary’s College was still located in Oakland, The Collegian is the longest-running student organization in Saint Mary’s history and is one of the oldest private college newspapers on the West Coast. In its current form, The Collegian publishes an 8-page half-color tabloid newspaper every Tuesday with a circulation of 1,000. The print issue is printed by Folger Graphics in Hayward. The majority of The Collegian’s funding is allocated from Student Involvement and Leadership and the Associated Students of Saint Mary’s College Senate, with the remainder supported through advertising. All executive and editorial positions receive stipends. Many previous writers and editors have continued into successful careers in journalism and have been placed at NBC News, KTVU, Pearson, the Valley Sun, and the Oakland Tribune, among others.

Saint Mary’s students are welcome to contribute to The Collegian at our weekly storyboard meetings every Monday at 6 p.m. in Dante 119.

DSC_1097Inspiration Statement

“To act upon one’s convictions while others wait,
To create a positive force in a world where cynics abound,
To provide information to people when it wasn’t available before,
To offer those who want it, a choice—”

—Ted Turner
