The Maine Campus is one of the oldest newspapers in Maine.
Founded in 1875, the Maine Campus is one of the oldest newspapers in Maine. The Maine Campus is funded by your student Communications Fee and ad sales, which means you are part of the magic that happens here at the Maine Campus. In our more than 140 year history as a paper, we have gone through many iterations. As you can see from our history (to the right), the Maine Campus has been published at various intervals throughout it's history depending on the administration of the paper that is working at the time.
The Maine Campus is editorially independent of the University. The Maine Campus is not only a student newspaper, but, we remain unique of many student newspapers across the country as we do not retain any non-student employees - our entire staff is comprised of your peers! The Maine Campus has been continuously published on various schedules since 1875.
