Chicago Illini (1962-1988), is an independent student newspaper, financed through advertising and is written by and for the students at UICC. It contains information about student activities, sports, and campus organizations and issues. The newspaper is published weekly during the fall, winter and spring quarters, and bi-monthly during the summer. Prior to November 1968, this title was an official campus student newspaper, operating out of the Office of Student Affairs. The Chicago Illini's predecessor was the Pier Illini (See RG 059/07/00/04), and was also known as the Commuter Illini (B11-12-02) from January to November 1968. Title changed to Chicago Flame in September 1988. Whoosh!, the official publication of the UIC Flames Tip-In Club (men's basketball booster club) appeared as an occasional insert beginning in 1997. Some issues of Whoosh! dating from 1997-2006 were removed and were filed as a separate publication (Whoosh!, RG# 010-04-02-00-03). Other Whoosh inserts, including those dating from 2006 on, were not removed from the Chicago Flame.
