Nuestra Cosa has been UCR’s official Chicano/Latino newspaper since 1972. Under the leadership of a student editor and two faculty/staff advisors, our talented student writing staff creates content ranging from news stories and op-ed pieces to entertainment features and student-drawn political cartoons. Each part of Nuestra Cosa informs readers about issues important to the Chicano/Latino community

New issues of Nuestra Cosa are published each quarter. You can always pick up the latest issue in the Chicano Student Programs office.
