Controversy

The Tuesday October 16, 2012 issue featured a four-panel cartoon by cartoonist D. C. Parsons, deemed offensive by some 8,000 signatories to a petition to have the Cartoonist and Editor-in-Chief and Copy-Editor fired. The editor-in-chief did not step down despite the number of signatories asking for her resignation; however, the cartoonist was promptly fired after the publication.

The paper did issue an apology for the matter.[8]

The Mayday Mystery

Every year since at least the early 1970s,[9] an advertisement is taken out in the Daily Wildcat on May 1 (May Day) also, at other seemingly various random times during the year, containing cryptic "clues" to some sort of "mystery".[10] The mystery would appear to have its origins in the 1890s.[11]

Alumni
