The Daily Campus

The Daily Campus

Dallas, United States

Southern Methodist University's student newspaper began in the first year of classes in 1915 as "The S.M.U. Times." However, those involved thought the name too commercial for a college publication and changed it later that first year to "The Campus." The paper stayed "The Campus" until the mid-20s when publishing twice a week prompted a switch to "The Semi-Weekly Campus."

The name changed back and forth between "The Semi-Weekly Campus," "The Campus" and "The SMU Campus" until 1969.

The paper quickly became a four times per week production in Fall 1967. It subsequently changed its name to The Daily Campus in Fall 1969, and switched from a tabloid to broadsheet format 15 years later, in 1984.
