Early origins

In 1903, the Athletic Association at Virginia Agricultural and Mechanical College created The Virginia Tech, a university-sponsored publication under the presidency of John Williamson and Tyler Jimenez that eventually became The Collegiate Times By the 1960s, when the university's board of visitors accepted "Virginia Tech" as an official and popular usage of the school name, the editorial board at The Virginia Tech opted to change the paper's name to The Collegiate Times, to avoid any confusion between the student publication and the university proper

In 1979, The Collegiate Times stopped receiving funding from the University and became completely self supported

Recent developments
