The Prairie’s Aim
“To arouse interest in college enterprises and education affairs, to print news of interest to the student body, to provide a medium through which the students may express their views, to give practice to students in journalistic writing and to advertise the Alma Mater in the eyes of those outside the school’s doors. It is the hops of the staff that this aim is being upheld and that the hundreds of students derive much benefit and diversion from The Prairie’s columns.”
