The Flat Hat now prints twice weekly, but up until the spring of 2007 it used to only print once weekly.

Rocket Magazine is the premiere art and fashion publication at The College of William and Mary. Founded by Justin Miller in 2011, the purpose of Rocket is to provide an outlet for student artistic expression primarily through art and design, fashion, photography, and feature.
One of the earliest recorded examples of satirical literature at the College. The premier issue is the only remaining copy in Swem Archives. It debuted during the height of the antebellum period with the country torn over the issue of states rights and slavery. The Owl addresses many issues that would be considered controversial today, such as race and gender. Other issues addressed that are still present were professors, administration, and Williamsburg citizens. There is no evidence of funding found for The Owl. A theory on this is that The Owl was merely a joke amongst a group of students and they used their own money to pay to have it printed. Also there is no evidence to prove that multiple copies were produced and distributed.
