About

What is the Triton?

Founded in 2015, The Triton is a digital-first, independent, student-run campus newspaper with the goal of covering content relevant to the UCSD community.

Created shortly before the defunding of student media at UCSD, The Triton is the sole fully independent student newspaper at UCSD. In an era where respected journalists are reprimanded for seeking out the truth, we think it’s important than ever to focus on local, laser focused journalism.
