Athens State University

About this collection

This collection contains over 500 newspapers published by the students of Athens State University, Alabama’s oldest continuously operating institution of higher education. Beginning in 1822 as Athens Female Academy, Athens State University has formerly been called Athens Female Institute, Athens Female College, Athens College, etc. The majority of this collection spans 1901 to 2018. The newspaper covers topics related to University students, alumni, staff, clubs, faculty, administration, events, programs, and more. The campus paper has been titled “The Athenian,” with the exception of the years 1931 - 1949 where it was title “The Crow’s Nest” and in 1963 where it bore the name “The Searcher” and “…the Newspaper.” The newspapers were digitized and made accessible online thanks to the very generous donation by Mary Elizabeth Partin.
