About Us

The Lutrinae (formerly The Otter Realm) is a weekly student-run newspaper covering California State University, Monterey Bay and its neighboring communities. 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.

In light of COVID-19, The Lutrinae will now be available in online formats only. You can follow us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook for additional content.
