Name of creator
The Douglas Pinion was a campus newspaper created with the goal of "bridging a long-time communication gap between students, faculty, staff and the communities served by this college." Although its first publication date was April 2, 1975, the Pinion was not formally approved by the Douglas College Council until April 3, 1975. The paper was staffed by students from the College's new journalism course, who served as reporters, editors, and photographers.
The Pinion covered campus and community news, with regular arts, sports, and opinion sections, as well as advertisements and classifieds. The newspaper highlighted new program offerings, extracurricular opportunities, construction updates, staff hirings, and student politics.
Originally intended to publish every two weeks, the Pinion's publication history proved to be less frequent and less consistent. Typically the paper came out once a month during the school year, although not every month saw the release of a new issue.
The Douglas Pinion published its final issue in April 1981. When Kwantlen College separated from Douglas College that year, the new institution took with it the journalism program and the student-run newspaper, which was renamed The Kwantlen Chronicle.
