"The California Aggie" is a newspaper distributed in the Davis, California area. It is staffed primarily by UC Davis students, and is the official campus newspaper.

History

The California Aggie was first published in 1915 as the "Weekly Agricola" after its approval by the Associated Student Executive Committee. At this point, UC Davis was considered the university farm, an extension of UC Berkeley. Students from UC Berkeley's paper, "The Daily Californian", advised the "Weekly Agricola" during its beginning months.

Initially, the "Weekly Agricola" was focused on both student news and farming-related topics. Novelist Jack London was one of the first readers of the "Weekly Agricola". In 1922, it was renamed to match the school's athletic name. [ [http://www.ucdavis.edu/spotlight/1006/aggie_early_years.html UC Davis: Spotlight: Student news since 1915 ] ]

Today, the Aggie has the largest print distribution in Yolo County, at around 13,000 copies distributed daily. It is available for free at many stands around the UC Davis campus.
