The Catalyst is an academic tutorial and student-run newspaper sponsored by Dr. Maria Vesperi. New College opened to students in 1964 and the newspaper was founded soon after that. The paper emerged from a hiatus in the 1980s as its current form in Fall 1992. The paper had been printing and distributing campus-wide until the COVID-19 pandemic abruptly forced operations online, and the Catalyst will continue to be distributed virtually until further notice.
