The Daily Vidette, located at the Corner of University & Locust in Normal, IL, was founded in 1888. Throughout its 100-plus year history, the Vidette's basic role has remained the same -- to provide a voice for the students of ISU.
The first Videttes were printed as pamphlets. In 1906 the newspaper switched to weekly publication. In 1915, the newspaper began receiving student fees and discontinued charging subscribers. Publication frequency changed from weekly to semiweekly in 1934, but returned to weekly in 1943. It was not until 1962 that the newspaper was restored to biweekly publication. Frequency of publication increased to three days per week in 1969, four days per week in 1973 and finally five days per week in 1976.
The Daily Vidette provides ISU students with professional work experience and serves as the university community's daily newspaper. The Daily Vidette is not simply a student newspaper of campus news, but rather a complete morning newspaper covering international, national, state and local news. The Vidette offers in-depth features and reviews, columnists and cartoonists.
The Vidette publishes approximately 6,500 issues a day Monday through Friday during the school year and 4,500 issues Wednesdays during the summer term.
The Daily Vidette is dedicated to the pursuit of truth, excellence and providing its readers with the knowledge they deserve.
