The undergraduate newspaper, The Simmons News, was first published in October 1923. While the newspaper has changed names throughout the decades, including The Simmons News (1923-1970, 1985-1997) and Janus (1970-1985), it settled on The Simmons Voice starting in 1997. Regardless of its name, however, the Simmons newspaper has always acted as a conduit for Simmons students to discuss College affairs, as well as political and social issues. It also has the distinction of being, at the time of its creation, one of the few collegiate newspapers not under editorial control of either the faculty or administration. Please note that many volumes and issues have inconsistent or nonexistent volume or issue numbers. Original scans were of bound issue copies and converted from microfilm. As such, tight binding may cut off the edges of various issues and photographs may be too dark to see. Also note that some issues of the newspaper, especially in the earlier years, contain harmful, offensive, and racist language and imagery. Description metadata includes verbatim article titles as written in the newspaper. As such, some descriptive metadata might include harmful, offensive, or racist language.
