UCI’s student newspaper went through several changes before becoming The New University in September 1968. The first student paper was Spectrum, which lasted from October 20, 1965 to January 27, 1966. Without University support, students formed a non-profit corporation to publish the paper. Next was the rival publication, Tongue, which published five issues between February and May 1966 and used the motto “The Windy Satisfaction of the Tongue” – a quote from The Odyssey of Homer. In the second year of the University came a third student newspaper called Anthill, which lasted for 32 issues published between October 6, 1966 and May 31, 1968. The New University continues to this day, housed in the same offices where it started in September 1968.
