RISD press was a student newspaper published weekly in the early 1970s, a self-described attempt at consolidating into one digestible pile all the information outlets of the school, including the previous student newspaper, Montage. The issue of May 4, 1973 had an article about RISD student housing with the Dean, Mrs. Davies. There were some articles about RISD faculty Harry Beckwith and the conflict surrounding him. A poem, comics, and events for RISD students were also mentioned.
