Administrative history

The Argosy Weekly is an independent student newspaper by the students at Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick. This paper was created by Mount Allison’s Eurhetorian society, a debate society founded in 1841. The paper itself began publication in 1872, which makes it one of the oldest official student publications in Canada. The goal of this newspaper is to provide articles of interest to Mount Allison’s student population. The types of articles that can appear in the Argosy include news related to art, science, and politics, reviews, society and sports news, as well as creative writing, opinion pieces, and humor. It is currently maintained by its parent organization, Argosy Publications Inc., which is overseen by a Publication Board of faculty and student representatives.
