There’s no better way of getting involved with life at Lancaster and your student media than by joining SCAN. As one of the oldest and most prominent groups on campus – established in 1967 – we’ve undergone many changes over the years and have only continued to improve. SCAN is an acronym for Student Comment And News, with a wide range of sections for aspiring journalists and photographers to become a part of. For example, Carolynne embodies many of the more creative sections; whereas News, Comment and Sport allow you to hone your journalistic skills and write about the things most important to you.

If you have a question for a specific section editor, head to our Editorial Team page to find their individual email addresses.

Otherwise, please email, and someone will be in contact as soon as they can!
