In the early years of this millennium, a decision was made to digitize Illinois Wesleyan University's newspaper, The Argus. With funds from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, a team of dedicated archivists worked to digitize those issues published between 1894 and 2003. Archivists hoped that this repository would serve as a place for interested parties to learn about this unique campus, its student life, and its place in the world of American higher education and the state of Illinois. Visitors to the site can choose a decade to browse, or they can also pick out at a specific year. First-time visitors might wish to choose an issue from early January 1980, as it talks about the transformation of the school's drama program and the change in the drinking age in Illinois.
