The newspaper's goal was to provide an open space for students to express themselves to the rest of the community, but also to report relevant and interesting community and international news to the Evergreen community.
The newspaper has covered many large events that have happened at The Evergreen State College. In recent years, the newspaper has covered a professor that embezzled money from students; the Dead Prez riot, when student flipped a police patrol car after the arrest of a black community member; the Students for a Democratic Society's sit-in of the Vice President of Student Affairs office after the group was temporarily disbanded by administration; and a labor strike by student support staff employees for a living wage increase and better benefits.
Most students who have worked for the Cooper Point Journal have typically been volunteers.
Sometimes, they've been compensated with a small education stipend. Occasionally, a student will be on the CPJ staff for an Independant Learning Contract, and would then receive college credits instead of the stipend. Inthe newspaper was first called the Weakly Drag, and was changed to The Paper.
The name of the newspaper changed again to The Cooper Point Journal in the last months of The newspaper traditionally styled itself after a typical newspaper format black and white, bi-fold, headlineand ran weekly. Inthe newspaper only printed issues for the fall and spring quarter.
It appears that the Editor in Chief reed in the middle of the year, and the newspaper took a break during winter quarter to resituate itself as an organization. Innewspaper staff decided to move all of its presence and content online.
At that point, the paper's readership became nearly non-existant, and could no longer attract advertisers to pay for ad space. It was decided in that the paper needed a revival of the print edition.
The print edition became tabloid styled, with color on the front, back, and middle spread. The newspaper currently runs every two weeks bi-monthly. The newspaper has historical issues with mis-labeling papers.
Sometimes the volume would change in the middle of the school year, or there would be duplicate issue s on two different prints. Since the newspaper was weekly, sometimes the most accurate way to chronically read through the newspaper is by paying attention to the published dates, which tend to be more accurate than the volume or issue .
