The Megaphone

Southwestern University’s student newspaper began in 1907 when students came before the faculty asking for their support in starting a student newspaper. The first issues were published during the week of commencement as The Commencement Daily, and this merged into a weekly publication the next year. The Megaphone reflects campus life as well as Georgetown and Williamson County events and activities, especially during the early years when town and gown were indistinguishable.
