The Michigan Times, the student newspaper of the Flint campus of the University of Michigan, was founded in 1956. It is the only official campus newspaper issued on campus and run entirely by the university students. It is casually referred to on and around campus as "The M-Times."

Starting in the fall of 2010, The Michigan Times went from being published biweekly, to weekly. The transition also included cutting the number of pages in the newspaper in half, with a four-page A section and a two-page B section (M2).

About The Michigan Times

The Michigan Times has seen notables such as filmmaker Michael Moore and American Idol finalist LaKisha Jones on its staff.

The Michigan Times has a print run of 3,000 papers per issue and is printed weekly.

The Michigan Times website was launched in 2003. It marked the first time the newspaper had been available in a digital format. The website was re-vamped in 2010, preceding the relaunch of the university's website. The website will once again undergo a makeover during the summer of 2011 and will re-launch in September 2011.
