Louisburg College Student Newspapers Now Online

Issues of the Louisburg College Student Newspaper are now online at The available issues date from 1908 to 1998, covering the school’s transformation from an all-female institution to a coeducational one in 1931. The student newspaper underwent a number of title changes throughout the years, publishing as “Louisburg Echoes”, “The Gull”, “The Sea Thean” (a play on the two literary societies – the Sea Gift and the Neithean Society – that co-published the newspaper), and my personal favorite, the “Lo’ Co'”, before finally settling on “Columns” in the early 1940s. “Columns” is still published today as the school’s alumni magazine.
