Founded in 1946 as The Colonial News at what was then known as Triple Cities College, Pipe Dream is the oldest and largest student group at Binghamton University. Pipe Dream is published independently by an Executive Board composed entirely of undergraduate students, without the supervision or assistance of an adviser.

Pipe Dream publishes issues online on Mondays and Thursdays during the semester — and breaking news throughout the week. This semester, Pipe Dream is experimenting printing "weekly highlights" every few Tuesdays. See below for more information.

Views expressed in the opinions pages represent the opinions of the columnists. The only piece which represents the views of the Pipe Dream Editorial Board is the Staff Editorial.


We are always looking for new ways to serve our readership. In 2020, amid the COVID-19 pandemic and budget constraints, our print schedule was heavily reduced, after formerly printing both our Monday and Thursday issues.

This semester, we are seeking to discover a new, sustainable printing model. Weekly Highlights will feature some of the week’s top content – aggregating a few articles from the two online issues prior to the Tuesday print date. Our printing schedule will increase in frequency as we progress through the semester and experiment in search of a feasible model.

By the end of fall 2022, our editors will convene to determine a printing schedule for the spring semester. Follow our socials to keep up with any updates or changes.


Weekly Highlights will be printed on the following dates this semester: Sept. 12, Oct. 4, Oct. 18, Nov. 8, Nov. 15, Nov. 22 and Dec. 6.

Pipe Dream will also be printing three Special Issues this semester, on the following dates: Aug. 22 (Orientation Issue), Sept. 19 (Housing Issue) and Nov. 1 (Basketball Issue).


Pipe Dream is open to all Binghamton University students, and no prior experience is necessary to join our team. Binghamton University students may join any of Pipe Dream’s sections. These include News, Sports, Opinions, Arts & Culture, Fun, Copy, Design, Photography, Web Development and Newsroom Technology.
