“In America, the President reigns for four years, but Journalism governs forever.”–Oscar Wilde
The Montclarion is the weekly, independent student newspaper of Montclair State University. It was founded in 1928 as The Pelican. It strives to report on campus news, arts, opinions and sports. The Montclarion aims to provide an outlet for young journalists to hone their reporting skills and learn about newspaper layout and design, while building a clip book to show employers after graduation.
The Montclarion’s first year as an independent newspaper was 2008-2009 after a long battle between MSU’s Student Government Association for financial freedom.
