Many student publications have come and gone during the University's
long history. These imprints, whether short-lived or long-standing,
have served to a varying extent as platforms for young writers and
as training grounds for aspiring editors, photographers, and illustrators.
Historically, no other student activity has reached and regularly
served more of the campus community than student-based publications.
The eyewitness accounts of university events, assorted political
commentary, poetry, and pictures preserved on their pages embody
161 of the 210 years that UNC has been open to students.
