USF Oracle Archive

The University of South Florida's student newspaper The Oracle replaced the Campus Edition of the Tampa Daily Times in 1966. Run by student journalists with a faculty advisor, there is no better resource for learning about daily life on campus and beyond.

The Oracle documents the changing cultural landscape of college life at USF like no other. Students and administrators jousted over more control of the newspaper in the 1960s. Student journalists shook things up by revealing multiple scandals and covering student recreation and activist movements.

This collection is regularly added to with new content.

Digitized print editions from 1966-1975, 1980 available, here.

Born Digital editions will be added in the future.

Current issues of the USF Oracle are available via their website:
