Student Newspapers in the Archives (1968-Present)

Humber Archives works to preserve the history and heritage of Humber, and one of the most important collections we have to tell our story is our student newspaper collection. Since 1968, Humber's Journalism students have put together various newspaper publications which tell about events and milestones at Humber.

The Archives is proud to have a (nearly) complete collection of these publications going back to 1968. You can explore over 1,400 digital or digitized issues online. Or explore specific publications, such as "Ad Hoc" (1968-1970), "Hum Drum" (1970-1971), "Coven" (1971-1993), and "Humber Et Cetera" (1993-present). Our AtoM database, which indexes all copies, also allows you to keyword search each issue.

If you don't know where to start, you can poke around and read a bit about the end of "Liberation College" (a student protest movement at Humber in the early 1970s), or the Lakeshore Cottages official opening in 1995, or Humber students contacting the International Space Station in 2009.

Regardless of what you find in these issues, they manage to provide a fascinating view of Humber's development and a unique perspective on Humber through a student journalism lens.

You can explore additional digitized archival material online, or come and visit the Archives to explore any of our collections (including the student newspapers) in person.
