SCOPE AND CONTENTS

This series includes literary journals, newspapers and newsletters produced by and for the students of St. Jerome's College.

THE BEE, a literary journal, began publication in 1899 to aid students in the development of their literary talent, to be informational and to confirm and strengthen the bond between the college and its alumni. It includes poetry, essays, news items ("editorials"), speeches, alumni notes and athletic news. Published monthly, it also included a few advertisements from local merchants and a few photographs. In 1905 the name of the journal was changed to THE SCHOOLMAN. An expanded version of its predecessor, it was more scholarly and included Letters to the Editor. It was published monthly until 1912 and thereafter quarterly until it ceased publication in 1918. The journal was resurrected in 1927 as the ALMA MATER. More of a newspaper, it was published monthly (until 1935, then quarterly) to record student activities, to develop literary talent and to keep alumni informed of school events. The publication includes brief articles on alumni news, college events, sports news, the literary societies, editorials, short essays and jokes. It continued to contain advertisements from local merchants and only a few photographs in earlier issues. It stopped publication in 1953 and resumed again in 1963. By 1965 there were no advertisements but many more photographs chronicling school events, staff, sports and important occasions. It ceased publication sometime after 1965.

From 1967 to 1989 there were several attempts to establish a student newspaper or newsletter. They include: THE GALOSH [1967]; VULGATE (1968); THE SANDAL (1968-1970); THE LAMPLIGHTER (1972); THE COFFEE SHOP CHRONICLE (1974-1977); THE STUDENT ORGAN (1980); THE STUDENT UNION NEWSLETTER (1988-1989); and the S.J. SCENE (1988-1989).

In 1989 ACROSS THE CREEK, a newsletter published under the auspices of the St. Jerome's Student Union, began publication. Issued quarterly until 1991, it appears monthly and includes news on current and upcoming events, personnel, essays, poetry, puzzles, recipes, movie reviews and student elections. ACROSS THE CREEK ceased publication in 2011..

There is also one copy of THE JEROME RADICAL (Vol. 1, Jan. 1995, No. 1) published by the Student Catholic Community. It is a Catholic paper which offers a forum to stimulate dialogue within the college and the larger university Catholic community.

LAUREL is an inter-church-college student newspaper published monthly to encourage interdenominational communication, the sharing of ideas, and to provide a Christian forum on current events and controversial church issues. LAUREL includes notices of upcoming church college events, profiles of students and faculty, humor, fiction, poetry, opinion pieces, letters to the editor, and short essays.
