Michigan State University's yearbook, The Red Cedar Log, is published by students under the auspices of the Associated Students of Michigan State University. The yearbook is free to MSU students and is supported through the ASMSU student tax. Other student publications include those maintained independently, or within colleges, departments, schools, living units, and student organizations. The State News, a daily newspaper distributed widely to students, faculty, and staff, is published by The State News, Inc. The corporation is separate and independent from the university; however, its staff is composed largely of Michigan State University students.
