The Tacoma Ledger
The Ledger is the weekly newspaper of UW Tacoma. Issues are published every Monday while classes are in session, and distributed via print and email newsletter. The story development, writing, editing, design, and art direction of the paper are handled entirely by student staff. The Ledger office is located in MAT 151.
