The Alligator stands with The Battalion - and all student print journalism

On Thursday, Feb. 10, The Battalion, Texas A&M’s student newspaper, was told by university administration to shut down their print edition. The 129-year-old student publication has been printing their paper since 1893. Texas A&M President M. Katherine Banks has demanded it ceases.  If it doesn’t move exclusively online, The Battalion will be stripped of its resources, including their office space and faculty advisor.  Texas A&M administration is censoring student journalism. That is unacceptable.
