About The Tartan

The Tartan has been Carnegie Mellon University's student-run newspaper since 1906. With a weekly broadsheet paper circulation of 6,000, The Tartan serves the campus community of 9,500 students as well as faculty, staff and administration.

One of Carnegie Mellon's largest student organizations, The Tartan is also a pre-eminent media source on campus. Every week, nearly 150 students come together to provide news and event coverage to the University and its surrounding communities. The broadsheet newspaper is comprised of four primary sections — News, Science & Technology, Forum, and Sports — while the tabloid section, Pillbox, also incorporates Comics.

The Tartan Online creates an easy method for people away from campus to read the paper. While it provides the full weekly content of the newspaper, it also provides several other compelling features. In the coming months, expect to see up-to-the-minute news headlines from around campus and opinionated weblogs from the paper's finest writers, along with several other new features dedicated to making The Tartan Online your first and foremost source of information.
