"Our reader surveys and the conversations that we have with our campus community tell us how important the print version of OCN is, especially for those people that don't work at a computer, and we will continue to utilize the advantages of having both OCN online and in print."
OCN began printing a bi-weekly newspaper in 1993 and continues to be the official newspaper of record for the University of Saskatchewan. OCN is also the recipient of the Canadian Council for the Advancement of Education (CCAE) Prix d'Excellence award for "Best Newspaper" in 2008 and 2010.
While the print version of OCN will publish every two weeks during the academic year (first issue is Aug. 26), OCN online will be updated regularly.
With a new look and new features, OCN online incorporates daily news and information as well as videos, photos, music, user commentary, social media, and other added benefits to sharing news online. OCN in print will continue to provide the same great reportage that we have since 1993 with extended features, interesting articles and the most comprehensive news coverage of its kind in Canada.
