The University Magazine, founded 1875

The first eight-page issue of the University Magazine was published November 1, 1875. It was founded by members of the Philomathean Society as Penn's first student news publication as well as a literary journal. This magazine provided a faithful record of events at the University on a monthly, and later a semimonthly, basis. It laid the ground work for and then merged into the Pennsylvanian, the student newspaper begun as a University-wide endeavor in 1885 which continues today as the Daily Pennsylvanian.

A more detailed history of the University Magazine is available.
