About The All State

The APSU student newspaper, The All State, is entirely student-produced, with the guidance of the Student Publications adviser. The All State is a publication that provides a public forum for the expression of student opinion and a medium for dissemination of timely news relevant to the campus community. The All State has been serving as a student-run outlet for the dissemination of news and information of interest to the campus community since 1930. The All State distributes between 2,000 and 3,000 copies to our fellow campus community members each week in print, and many more readers interact with us online at and through its social media platforms.

In 2015-16, The All State celebrating its 85th anniversary following years of extraordinary leadership starting with the first Editor-in-Chief, Malvin Utleye. The All State has been recognized for excellence at the state, regional and national levels, earning first place at the Southeast Journalism Convention held every year in February. The All State has placed in the top five schools at the same convention multiple times over the course of the last decade.
