About Us

The College Reporter is a weekly, student-run news publication at Franklin & Marshall College, a liberal arts college in Lancaster, Pennsylvania with 2,300 students. The College Reporter is entirely produced by students and is financially and editorially independent from the College. It is the only such publication produced by students at F&M.

The College Reporter follows in a tradition of student journalism at F&M that began in 1881 with The College Student. The F&M Weekly, founded in 1891, followed, then The Student Weekly, founded in 1915, and finally The College Reporter was formed in 1964.

The crest of The College Reporter was created in 2004 by Kim Cortes ’05. The College Reporter was launched online in 2009 and re-launched under new design in 2016.
