The Guardian Student Newspaper

The Guardian is the official student-run newspaper of Wright State University. Current issues of The Guardian are digitized as they are published. Historical issues of The Guardian, dating back to as early as 1964, are currently in the process of being digitized. All issues currently available in digital form can be found on CORE Scholar: The Guardian Student Newspaper.

Academic Course Catalogs

The University Archives maintains a complete run of Wright State University Catalogs, which contain descriptions of all courses offered at Wright State from 1964 to present. Course catalogs between 1964 and 2010 are available online in CORE Scholar: Academic Course Catalogs.

Alternative Student Newspaper Collection

The collection of alternative student newspapers is comprised of 43 various newspapers with duplicate copies. The alternative papers were created by students to have a voice of their own since they felt that the official school paper did not fully represent them. The papers are illustrated and at times express extreme or radical viewpoints. The papers offer a rare view inside the student body during the early years of WSU. The alternative student newspapers are available online in CORE Scholar: Alternative Student Newspapers.

Wright State University Retirees Association (WSURA) Oral History Project

The WSU Retirees Association (WSURA) collects oral history interviews with faculty, staff, and students from the early days of Wright State. This is an ongoing project, with new interviews still being conducted. Interview videos and transcripts are available online in CORE Scholar: WSU Retirees Association (WSURA) Oral History Project.

Boonshoft School of Medicine Oral History Project

The oral histories in this collection capture the events of the founding of Wright State University's School of Medicine. The project took place from 1983-1985, in an effort to preserve the history of the School of Medicine through its founders' personal experiences and opinions. The audio interviews are available online in CORE Scholar: Boonshoft School of Medicine Oral History Project.
