New University (newspaper)
|Founded||September 23rd, 1968|
|Headquarters||UCI, Irvine, CA, USA|
The New University is a student-operated newspaper at the University of California, Irvine. Originally named the Spectrum, later Spectre, The Tongue, and The Anthill, it is published once a week during the regular academic year. Although the New University is officially a university department, it is funded solely by advertising. Unlike many college newspapers, the New University has no faculty advisor and is not formally tied to any academic program.
The New University's editorial staff consists of UCI undergraduates. The Editor in Chief is elected in the late winter by a vote of the current year's staff; the Editor in Chief-elect then selects new senior and associate editors.
Though the New University is technically a self-supporting enterprise under the university's Student Government department, it operates with relative independence and autonomy from the university.
Throughout the years, the New University has won many local, regional, statewide, and national awards.
