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. Beginning in September 1973, RISD press included the Brown Daily Herald’s weekly issue of Fresh Fruit as an insert. The issue of October 5, 1973 had an article about the RISD television and video studies and the set-up in the RISD auditorium. There was an article about unions for students and women at colleges who filed a sex discrimination suit against Tufts University. Also, an article about 3 photographers at the RISD Museum were also included. Comics, short stories, and events for RISD students were also included.
