The Scholars’ Avenue is the independent student-run campus newspaper of the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur. Founded in 2005, copies of The Scholars’ Avenue are now delivered to all students on campus and soft copies are mailed to all the faculty and several thousand alumni. The team is drawn entirely from among the students of the institute, and its mission is to report and analyze events that affect the campus, and to be the voice of the IIT Kharagpur student community. We are a non-profit organization independent of the administration of IIT Kharagpur and supported by sponsorships and donations.
Each of our issues is a juxtaposition of the informational, the technical and the creative. We report campus events and happenings, function as a public interface between students and the administration, summarize technical advancements taking shape on campus and not the least, print the funnies.
