About Us

The Anchor is the independent student newspaper of the Rhode Island College community since 1928.  We serve as a source of news and a tool for recording events for the college and surrounding community and as a forum for free expression. We aim to provide fair, accurate and timely coverage of news and events to the RIC community, while facilitating the educational experience of newspaper operation.

COVID-19 Update: As Rhode Island College conducts a distance learning semester, we are a primarily digital newspaper. Our articles are published on Sundays and we send out a newsletter on Mondays. But we still love our paper publications, and therefore, will continue printing on a monthly basis with our favorite articles from the last few weeks.
