HistoryEdit

In 1896, the College Barometer was founded as a monthly magazine for literature. The format changed to a weekly paper in 1906, a semi-weekly in 1909 and in 1922 became a daily paper, publishing five times per week. In 2016, The Daily Barometer began printing weekly as The Baro, with daily news content delivered via videos and online content.[2]
