About the Site
The Torch is UMass Dartmouth’s student newspaper. It has been published weekly during the fall and spring academic terms since 1965. It was known in its first years as the SMTI Torch, and later as the SMU Torch. This index is a work in progress, and when completed, will cover the years 1965 to the present. Other student and staff publications will be added as well, starting with the Observer, 1991-2003. This is an index only.
