The Daily Barometer (a.k.a. The Baro)
Covering campus and community news, events and happenings for over 120 years, the Baro is the campus newspaper that prints weekly on Mondays and exists daily online. Student editors determine news and editorial content and direct the staff in reporting, writing and editing assignments. 12,000 copies of The Barometer are printed each Monday and are available on racks the same day. The Barometer creates daily video News Blasts in addition to in-depth content in the newspaper. The Barometer is also delivered through The Gazette Times each Tuesday, and The Barometer staff designs a special page in the Gazette-Times on Thursdays.

Students have access to a new, fully equipped television studio, editing facility and remote gear for practical training in television production.
