The Virginia Informer was first published in August 2005. Information gathered by students in LCST 201 "Constructing the News" about some College publications including The Virginia Informer is available at the course Wiki.

Since the late 1960s, students have frequently produced newspapers and other publications, including literary and creative journals, without official college sanction. The earliest one in the University Archives is The Owl, consisting of one issue published in 1854 by students at the college. The satirical and humorous Fat Head, distributed by The Flat Hat writers, has been in existence since at least 1939. The Special Collections Research Center also keeps copies of current alternative newspapers and publications.

Electronic versions of the Virginia Informer are available online at
