In 1925, the students of Morehouse college established the Athenaeum, a monthly journal that embodied the guiding principles of the young institution and showcased the talents of Afro-America’s finest young minds. After becoming The Maroon Tiger in 1931, the publication continued its enduring commitment to excellence and advocacy.
Today, the tradition continues on a weekly basis. The Maroon Tiger serves a broad community of students and scholars by maintaining a commitment to echial leadership and promoting a global focus. In this manner, we are a unique entity in the arena of college newspapers. Our goals stretch beyond the realm of journalism and encompass the guiding spirit of Morehouse College.
