The Spartan Daily is the student newspaper currently distributed three days a week on the San Jose State campus and in the surrounding community. It covers news, sports, arts and entertainment, tech and opinion relating to the campus and its students.

San José State University’s student newspaper has experienced several title changes over the years: The Normal Times (Oct. 1909–June 1920); The College Times (Sept. 1921–Oct. 1921); State Teachers College Times (Nov. 1921–June 1926); State College Times (Sept. 1926–April 1934); and Spartan Daily (April 1934–present).

Summertimes, a supplement to the Spartan Daily, was published during the summer months from 1936 to the 1980s.

Cry of Color, a Spartan Daily supplement, stemmed from student response to and protest of the publication of a racially insensitive advertisement in the February 25, 1970 issue of the Spartan Daily.
