The Chronicle, the independent student newspaper at Duke University, is actually older than the University itself. The first issue of The Trinity Chronicle was published Dec. 19, 1905. Trinity College became Duke University in 1924, and the newspaper continued to cover campus news and the world around it.
With a circulation of 8,000 two days a week (M/TH) and distribution throughout the University, Health System and parts of Durham, The Chronicle has a print readership of about 30,000. The Chronicle online, established in 1995, gets an average of 350,000 visitors per month and content is updated daily.
