Newspapers & Publications

The student newspaper, the Hullabaloo, evolved out of several earlier publications: College Spirit, 1894-1897; Olive and Blue, 1896-1906; Tulane Weekly, 1905-1919; Tulane Hullabaloo, 1920-today. These are available on microfilm (housed in the Howard-Tilton Memorial Library) up until 1996. Paper versions of the Hullabaloo after 1996 are currently available in the University Archives. Some recent Hullabaloo issues are available online.

Other publications accessible through the Special Collections Reading Room include the Jambalaya yearbook, produced annually from 1896-1996 and again from 2004-2009 (except for 2007), the Inside Tulane faculty and staff newsletter (1981-2005), and The Tulanian alumni magazine (1928-present).  Another magazine associated with the campus but not produced solely by Tulane students is the Urchin (1936-1961), a humor magazine which gleefully illustrates many aspects of college life. 

The T-Wave, the School of Medicine yearbook, is  available in print at the Matas Library of the Health Sciences.

The University Archives also maintains a collection of magazines, journals, and newsletters published by Tulane’s schools, departments, organizations, and student groups. Many of these are filed, not cataloged, so please ask a University Archives staff member for assistance in searching for a specific publication.
