The Albany Student Press (ASP) has been the name of the weekly student newspaper of the State University of New York at Albany (University at Albany, SUNY) since February 14, 1964 (Vol. L, no. 1). The ASP and its predecessors since 1916 have carried news of student events, opinion, organizations, and since the 1960s reviews of movies, recordings, and more recently, short literary pieces. The ASPis currently a weekly (while school is in session) publication, though for much of its existence (Fall, 1964 – Spring, 1996) it was published twice a week, Tuesday and Friday. By the fall of 1996 the ASP was published only on Friday, and after the spring of 2003 the publication date shifted to Monday. The ASP is the successor to the briefly titled weekly student newspaper, the State University News, February 8, 1963 -- January 10, 1964, (Vol. XLIX, no. 2 – XLIX, no. 27). The State University News and the Albany Student Press are the direct successors of the weekly State College News, October 4, 1916 -- January 11, 1963 (Vol. 1, no. 1 – sic XXXIX, correctly [LXIX], no. 1). The State College News was the first true (during the school year) student newspaper published at the then New York State College for Teachers. News of student life and events, faculty life and projects, and alumni news prior to 1916 was carried in the monthly The Normal College Echo, subsequently The Echo, from June 1892 – May-June, 1916 (Vol. 1, no. 1 — Vol. XXV, no. 9). The Normal College Echo and its successor, The Echo, were a combination literary magazine, student and alumni newspaper. After the creation of the State College News in fall of 1916, The Echo remained the school’s student literary magazine, and continued to carry faculty and alumni news until the creation of the Alumni Quarterly in 1919. The Echo also continued to carry some student news, particularly items of interest to alumni/ae, until 1919 when it became a strictly literary magazine. Issues of the The Normal College Echo, June 1892 (Vol. I, no. 1) -- January 1898 (Vol. VI, no. 6) and The Echo, May-June 1916, (Vol. 6, no. 7) are available in the Special Collections and Archives Reading Room. Issues of the Albany Student Press after 1985 are available in the University Libraries microfilm newspaper collection (1985 -- 1992, 1993 -- 1995) or in hard copy in the Special Collections and Archives Reading Room. The University Archives also holds original negative film and contact prints taken by ASP photographers between 1966 and 1976 (with a partial listing), and some prints from 2000.
