Arthur is published weekly, 25 times during the school year.
We distribute 3000 copies free of charge in numerous locations in the city of Peterborough and on the Trent campus.
Arthur is a not-for-profit corporation governed by a Board of Directors.
Arthur receives a $10.07 levy from each full time student of Trent University.
The opinions expressed do not necessarily represent those of the Arthur staff or its Board of Directors.
Arthur’s goal is to produce a weekly newspaper that gives informative, interesting and accurate accounts of events and issues relevant to Trent students.
Arthur exists as an essential component of the student community. Arthur should be accessible to and representative of the communities it serves.
We believe Arthur should be valuable and constructive by providing information and analysis, and by giving a forum to individuals and groups that have little or no access to other forms of media. Arthur acknowledges its privileged position in being free from commercial and administrative controls. We strive to protect that position by defending our editorial autonomy. Our mandate is to cover issues that affect students. However, we believe that no subject need fall outside the grasp of the student press, and that we best serve our purpose when we help widen the boundaries of debate on educational, social, economic, environmental and political issues.
