About Us

The Nugget has been the official NAIT newspaper since 1964.

Started as a platform to give the students of NAIT a voice, The Nugget has survived the ever-changing media market and is proving successful while in a revitalization period. With a growing want for accurate, local media, independent student newspapers are becoming more important than ever.

There are 13 issues produced per school year, with thousands of copies strategically distributed across the campus in high-traffic areas. Through social media, and our website, our online engagement has doubled in the last year.

With a team of 9 Student Editors and around 20 contributors, it is clear that student media is alive and well!
