The Stag is an editorially independent newspaper published by the University of Surrey Students’ Union. It is published every fortnight – you can pick up your copies from newspaper bins around campus, or read it here online. The Stag aims to cover events on campus, news relevant to university students, and special features.
The views expressed in the paper are those of individual authors and do not necessarily represent the views of the editorial team, the University of Surrey Students’ Union, or the University of Surrey.
The newspaper was established under the name barefacts in 1967. In 1968, the university was to move from its home in Battersea Park, south-west London, to Stag Hill, in Guildford, Surrey. Concerns were raised at a lunchtime Students Union meeting over troubles in communication between the students on each site while the move was in progress. Outgoing Union President, Bob Matthews, suggested a one-page newsletter covering both campuses, which would carry messages by clubs and societies, as well as general notices from the students’ union. The first few hundred issues were usually edited by the Union Executive, before an annual editor was appointed.
