Administrative History

The Daily Universe (1956- ) is the student created newspaper for reporting on activities on Brigham Young University campus and the surrounding community. The Daily Universe has a staff of journalism students who are led by a faculty advisor.

The Daily Universe was the campus-lab for journalism students. The Daily Universe mainly existed to train journalism and public relations students in writing for mass media. The lab produces a newspaper. The Daily Universe was overseen by an editor as well as a business manager. Beginning in 1972, the Universe was under the supervision of the Dept. of Communications within the College of Fine Arts and Communications. It was also under the supervision of a Daily Universe Advisory Board. In 2012 the paper ended printing its daily newspaper and changed its name to 'The Universe'. The Universe publishes a weekly newspaper and daily news updates are now posted on their website.
