RISD press was a student newspaper published weekly in the early 1970s, a self-described attempt at consolidating all the information outlets of the school, including the previous student newspaper, Montage. The issue of February 8, 1974 included an article about optional admission for students, the RISD student board meeting which discussed optional admission and block planning. The RISD Centennial Building program capital campaign was also included. Recipes, films, comics, and events for RISD students were also mentioned.
