Digital Collections of Spring Hill College: The Springhillian: Student Newspaper

The Springhillian: Spring Hill College Student Newspaper

The digitization of The Springhillian, our student newspaper, allows researchers, students, faculty, and friends of Spring Hill College a unique glimpse into life on campus over the past one hundred years.  Over the years, the student newspaper has chronicled student government, social events on campus, athletics, and student life.  

The Springhillian Digitization Project was generously funded by the Friends of the Spring Hill College Library.  The library faculty and staff are grateful for their contribution on this essential project.

Of note, many school years a single, special April Fool's Day issue called "The Springhooligan" was published.  These issues are searchable in the collection with the regular school year issues.

Searching online can be done by keyword or date.  Please use the collection link above to begin your search.
