story and info by the Lions’ Chronicle staff
In March of 2010, UAFS students launched the first student publication in 8 years. The Lions' Chronicle, which began as a monthly publication with a staff of 6 students, has since grown over the past few semesters to a staff of around 20.
With the increase in staff, the production has also grown. Last fall the staff produced 6 issues — one new issue about every two weeks.
Following are some of the recent stories from the Lions’ Chronicle. (Click on each headline for the full story.)

Lions’ Chronicle editorial
