The Massachusetts Daily Collegian, successor to the College Signal, began as a weekly student newspaper in 1914. In 1951 it moved to semi-weekly publication and then to three-times-weekly in 1957. In 1967 it became a daily newspaper, changing its title slightly to the Massachusetts Daily Collegian. From the early 1930s to the late 1940s, Professor Maxwell Goldberg guided the Collegian staff as faculty advisor, however today, the paper operates without a faculty advisor as a financially independent agency funded by advertisement monies.
The Collegian has been digitized by academic year, which at different times began in either September or October and ended in May or June. The Collegian also occasionally published a summer edition or issue.
