About Us

The Lutrinae is a weekly student-run newspaper covering California State University, Monterey Bay and its neighboring areas. Our goal is not only to educate and inform the public, but to entertain, to spark creativity, to encourage diversity of opinion, and to build a sense of community on campus and with the neighboring cities.

Formerly known as The Otter Realm, The Lutrinae brings modern designs, integration with social media and online tools, and ultimately, a newspaper that is made for students, by students. The Lutrinae is a fun, unique, and modern way to show our Otter Pride and effectively communicate with the entire campus community.

New issues of The Lutrinae are available every Thursday across various campus buildings and in our neighboring communities. View our distribution map to find a location near you. You can also find a collection of The Otter Realm’s archives as well as a brief history of the publication here.
