The Ursinus College Bulletin was the primary news outlet for the College, published and distributed to subscribers from 1885 until 1902, when the Ursinus Weekly newspaper took over that function.  It appeared approximately once a month during the school term.  Coverage includes campus and alumni news, official statements, speeches of invited speakers and students, book reviews, and general higher education and Reformed Church news both regionally and around the world.  In its later years, it also published literary contributions in the form of short stories and poetry.  Advertisements of local interest are also found in its pages.  Initially written and edited by alumni, undergraduate students assumed these roles beginning in 1893.  A valuable resource for higher education and religious history, as well as literary criticism, all issues are now available to download and browse in Digital Commons.
