Past Media

Marquette has a rich tradition of student-run media. Below is a list of University publications from the past century.

The Badger Sodalist

The Badger Sodalist printed its first issue in March 1929. The paper, or “spiritual action bulletin,” was established in an effort to represent the Catholic youth of Wisconsin. Although the bulletin had a staff of editors and publishers, it designated the Catholic student body as “sub-editors.” The Sodalist continued to publish quarterly bulletins until 1941 and was the longest running alternative student publication at Marquette.

The Marquette Federator

In October of 1949, the Marquette student body developed its second alternative campus publication, The Marquette Federator. The paper was published as a forum for current student events. The Federators Council sponsored the new paper in the interest of NFCCS (National Federation of Catholic College Students) club activity. The Federator was short lived, however, ending its run the following year.

Marquette Free Press

The Marquette Free Press launched in 1982 as a conservative campus media outlet. The Free Press was published as a monthly newspaper until it closed three years later.

The Independent

Like its predecessors, The Independent was created to represent an alternative voice on campus. The paper produced three issues before halting production in 1990.

The Warrior

An independent newspaper targeting the campus community, The Warrior began its production run in 2004. The paper presents a conservative perspective on campus news and events. The Warrior prints 5,000 copies per issue, which members of its staff distribute across campus bi-weekly.
