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 March 1, 1974 included an article with Merlin Szosz about block planning, notes from the RISD student board meeting, and an essay about the Painting department with photos. Also included were recipes, comic strips, record reviews, and events for RISD students.
