Who Knew WashU?

Question: The Record has served as the go-to news source for the WashU community for many years. It began as a weekly printed newspaper but transitioned to a digital publication in 2010. When was the first issue?

Answer: B) 1974. This year marks the Record’s 50th anniversary of bringing the campus community news about the many accomplishments of our faculty, staff and students.

Congrats to this week’s winner, Kweku Enninful, a graduate student at the McKelvey School of Engineering who will receive an “I Knew WashU” luggage tag!
