‘The Stag’ is the official magazine of the students at the University of Surrey. We aim to provide content covering a wide range of areas from student life to current affairs. We form one of three medias at surrey, the others being StagTV and Stag Radio.
We aim to release three high quality printed magazines throughout the year that cover university life and topics relevant to students.
The Stag dates back to 1967 when the newspaper ‘Bare Facts’ was first established. The ‘University of Surrey’ was back then, known as ‘Battersea Polytechnic’ and this one page newsletter was established to ensure good communication with students as the campus transitioned to Guildford as we know it today.
‘Bare Facts’ re-branded to ‘The Stag’ in late 2008 and transitioned from a newsletter to a magazine. In 2016 we achieved editorial independence from the Students Union enabling us to provide challenging and effective journalism ‘for the students, by the students.’
