The Diamondback is the award-winning independent student newspaper of the University of Maryland, College Park. It was founded in 1910 as The Triangle and renamed in 1921 in honor of a local reptile, the Diamondback terrapin (the terrapin became the official school mascot in 1933). The print edition of the newspaper is published daily Monday through Thursdays during academic sessions and once a week during the summer, with a print circulation of 14,000, down from a high of more than 21,000, and what used to be annual advertising revenues of more than $1 million. It is usually only about eight pages due to declining advertising revenue in recent years. The Diamondback publishes a digital edition on Fridays during the school year.
