University of Oklahoma Student Newspapers
Organized in 1890 by the first territorial legislature of Oklahoma, the University of Oklahoma in Norman began its first school year on September 15, 1892, with fifty-seven students. Just five years later in 1897, the first student newspaper, the University Umpire, first appeared. The University of Oklahoma has a rich history of journalism and publishing that began just after the school began its first semester, and it continues to this day, 125 years later.Added: April 2021.
