Pomona’s student newspaper, the oldest in Southern California, was first published by the College’s two literary societies in 1889 as The Pomona Student. In its first year, it was a four-page monthly, financed by student subscriptions that sold for 75 cents per year. The name of the publication changed to The Student Life in 1893. Today it is published weekly by the Associated Students of Pomona College and covers life across the five undergraduate institutions of The Claremont Colleges.
