What is The Cavailer Daily?

The Cavalier Daily is the independent daily news organization at the University of Virginia. The paper was founded in 1890 under the name College Topics. It is Virginia’s oldest collegiate daily and the oldest daily newspaper in Charlottesville, Virginia. It still runs today, being updated daily online, and is entirely student-led on a volunteer basis. (The Cavalier Daily, "About," 2022).
