About Us

The Forum was founded by ASCMC to provide affiliates of Claremont McKenna College a medium for exchange of ideas. Over the years, the paper has become a source of reliable news and procrastination-friendly entertainment of the CMC variety. In 2013, The Forum officially separated from ASCMC.

The Forum is always looking to grow and improve our content, and interested students should feel free to contact us at any time. The Forum is especially seeking students who are interested in helping with web development.
