Georgetown College Journal
The Georgetown College Journal was the first printed newspaper produced by Georgetown students. A monthly publication, its inaugural issue appeared in December 1872. The paper was a combination of student newspaper, literary publication, and alumni bulletin and the printing of letters and reminiscences from "Old Boys" extended its coverage of campus life and events to well before the Civil War. Athletics received particularly extensive coverage in its pages, with a recurring Athletic Notes section with team rosters and scores beginning in the late 1880s. Commencement ceremonies for the Medical School and the Law School, as well as for the College of Arts and Sciences, are also very well documented.
