The Minnesota Daily's roots stem back to 1877 when 15 seniors and 26 juniors started publishing a monthly literary magazine entitled The Ariel. The students began the newspaper because they believed it would provide a forum for student individuality and would keep the public informed on the growth of the University. In 1900 The Ariel began printing daily and was renamed The Minnesota Daily. (more »)
