The publication came to existence in 1978 when then-President Ferdinand Marcos’ repressive machinery was at its deadliest and most desperate times. Amid this critical scenario, student journalists of the Institute of Mass Communication (now the College of Mass Communication) promoted freedom of expression through writing and publishing their own sentiments in print.
