Established in 1907 as a bi-weekly news and sports journal, The Tiger is South Carolina's oldest college newspaper. The weekly national award-winning publication has a circulation of about 12,000 and is distributed every Friday on and off campus.
Today, The Tiger office is located inside Clemson University's Hendrix Student Center, its home since 2000. Previously, the newspaper had been located for many years on the ninth floor of the University Union. In October of 1997, the organization began the The Tiger: Online Edition which now manages to serve an average of 7,000 visitors a week. Although the newspaper used to receive funding each year from the University, The Tiger became financially independent in 2004. (More...)
