The Courier

In 1967, College of DuPage was established, despite the lack of a campus. In the very same year, student journalists launched The Courier, a weekly newspaper covering COD through exceptional writing, quality photography, in-depth research and visually appealing design.

Ever since, The Courier’s mission has been to ethically, accurately and efficiently report, promote, and explain school and community issues, as well as analyze their impact on the student body. While the times have changed, we remain dedicated in telling the stories of the students, staff and community members that make COD the school it is today.

The COD Library is in the process of digitizing past issues of The Courier. This is an ongoing project, and past issues will be posted as they are prepared for online publication. Please visit the Courier's website for the current issue.

Current Issue: Volume 10, Issue 19 (1977)
