Scotcampus was founded by Graeme Barratt and Anna Purdie, who launched Scotcampus, Scotland’s National Student Newspaper in 2001. The magazine operates as a lifestyle publication, using approachable and inspiring journalism to reach student readers across all campuses in Scotland.[1] Since it was founded Scotcampus has interviewed a number of different high-profile musicians, politicians, actors, directors and people of interest. Some of the most notable have included The Prodigy, Dizzee Rascal, Alex Salmond, Michelle Mone, Alastair Campbell, Armando Iannucci, Howard Marks and Sir Tom Hunter.

Freshers' Festival

Alongside the paper, Scotcampus hosts an annual Student Freshers' Festival, taking place in Glasgow.[2] The Freshers' Festival attracts more than 10,000 students and young people from across Scotland by offering up a selection of bands, DJ's and free gifts.[3] Previous exhibitors at the Festival have been wide ranging and have included Urban Outfitters, The RAF, Domino's Pizza, Ernst & Young and YO! Sushi.[4][5] 2010 will see the Freshers' Festivals expand into Edinburgh. Both events are also set to be powered with renewable energy.[6]
