SCAN or the Student College and Administrative News began to roll off the press in February 1967. Produced by the Senior Common Room, SCAN differed from Carolynne and John O’ Gauntlet because its editor was directly responsible to the SCR. SCAN became a reliable source of news about the university and its administration. Whereas Carolynne and John O’ Gauntlet expressed their own viewpoints, SCAN was more like a news service. Early editions were printed on yellow and pink paper and, although less sophisticated than its counterparts, it was well respected and highly praised.
SCAN still exists today but is drastically different from its predecessor! It has become the main student publication at the university.
