City on a Hill Press, originally launched in 1966 as The Fulcrum, is the weekly student newspaper of the University of California, Santa Cruz. Designed as a magazine, the weekly tabloid-sized paper releases new issues every Thursday of the fall, winter and spring academic quarters, as well as a back-to-school issue entitled "Primer" at the end of the summer session, for a total of 30 issues per school year.

The paper reports not only on UCSC campus news, but also on news in the city of Santa Cruz.


The paper was named the 1986 College Gold Crown Newspaper by the Columbia Scholastic Press Association,[1] as well as Best All-Around Student Newspaper in 1983 from the Society of Professional Journalists. Editorials and illustrations have also received CSPA awards in the past two decades. Most recently in 2007, the paper received CSPA honors for cover design and page layout.

Alia Wilson (spring 2007 Health/Science editor) and Daniel Zarchy (2008-09 Co-Editor in Chief), were awarded the Katharine M. MacDonald Award for excellence in student journalism by the California State University, Sacramento Center for California Studies and the Sacramento Press Club for their 2006 story[2] about immigration legislation in California.[3]

Sam Laird (fall 2006 City reporter, winter 2007 City editor) was awarded The Chronicle of Higher Education's fifth annual David W. Miller Award for Student Journalists for writing and reporting that he did while at City on a Hill Press, as well as a Columbia Scholastic Press Association Certificate of Merit for News Feature Writing for his 2007 story[4] "The Colorblind Society: Are We There Yet?"[5][6]


Notable alumni include Pulitzer Prize–winning journalists Dana Priest[7] and Martha Mendoza.[8]
