Historical student newspapers can be read with an eye towards examining the social mores of college students through the decades, and a close reading can reveal a great deal about the campus environment and overall milieu. The first student newspaper at the State University of New York at Albany (SUNY-Albany) was the State College News, and it carried news of student life and events, along with information on faculty activities and local doings. This digital archive from the M.E. Grenander Department of Special Collections & Archives at SUNY-Albany brings together issues of this paper from 1916 to 1985. Visitors to the site will note that they can download each issue separately, and read the issue at their leisure. It's an intriguing collection, and first-time visitors may want to look at some issues from the World War I years to learn how about this major world conflict affected life on campus.
