The Student Printz is the award-winning, student-run newspaper at The University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. We publish every Wednesday morning and online daily at

The Normal College News was the first newspaper to publish, on Dec. 21, 1918, at what was then Mississippi Normal College. The paper changed its name to the Teachers College News when the school changed its name on September 16, 1924.

The newspaper changed its name to the Student Printz in 1927, by campus referendum. The name was chosen because it sounded like the name of a popular contemporary musical, The Student Prince, which opened on Broadway in 1924.
