About NAIT Nugget

The Nugget has been your student newspaper since 1964.

Started as a platform to give NAIT students a voice, The Nugget has been educating and entertaining students with hyperlocal news for over 50 years. We publish 10 print issues a year (September to April) with content continually uploaded on our website and social media year round.

Our Mandate

The Nugget is committed to bringing the NAIT community accurate, fair and truthful news. We do our best to ensure all stories are thoroughly researched, and if we make mistakes, we own them. While the NAIT Students’ Association acts as publisher for The Nugget, they do not control what we write; The Nugget retains full editorial control of and responsibility for the content we publish. We pledge to represent our community by covering the content that matters to you. The Nugget shall deliver news that is not ubiquitous or abundantly available elsewhere, unless it is being covered in a unique way that would be of mass interest to our readership. Furthermore, we believe in providing opportunities for students. The Nugget will continue to create space for students to have a voice, learn new skills, and get involved on campus.
