In this week’s cover story titled “Campus Jottings” dated Sept. 17, 2012, for Edex, the education supplement of The New Indian Express, Jamia Journal is one among the six notable college newspapers it profiles.
The five other college newspapers listed in the article are: DU Beat, Delhi University; The Fourth Estate, IIT Madras; The Scholar’s Avenue, IIT, Kharagpur; Monday Morning, NIT, Rourkela; and VJ News, Veermata Jijabai Technological Institute (VJTI), Mumbai.
The article primarily looks into three aspects of these college newspapers; namely, when and how they were formed, how are they funded, and how do they operate.
What is to be noted, is that out of all the six college newspapers, Jamia Journal is the only one that is run independently of their institution.
Except Jamia Journal, all the newspapers profiled in the article are funded and managed by the their respective college or university.
It is a matter of great pride and joy for Jamia Journal to get such recognition.
On this momentous occasion, Jamia Journal would like to thank all who made Jamia Journal possible; all those who either write or have written for it as staff writers or contributors; all those who publicized and promoted Jamia Journal on campus and online; and above all, its loyal readers who subscribed to it and kept coming back for more.
Jamia Journal is grateful to you all.
