Note written by Rosemary Fischer
The Campus Review started out as a Faculty and Staff newspaper. The contents centered around people, events and schedules. Items included in this paper were: births, marriages, exam schedules, visitors to campus, special events, calendars, administrative information, fundraising news, and other general news about Clayton. Today’s Campus Review serves the Clayton State Community. The newspaper continues to carry personal news about faculty and staff. The front page now has a list of articles that appear inside the newspaper: Across the Campus, Life’s Transitions, Arts Page, Jobs! Jobs! Jobs!, Alumni/Development, Trivia Time, Sports, and articles specific to the edition.
The editions of the Campus Review are filed in order by Volume Number and Date. The collection starts out being organized by academic year. Each academic year begins in July and ends at the end of June. Each academic year was the start of a new volume number. The files are by academic year and volume number. In 1999, the volume and issue numbers did not appear on each edition. In January 2000, the volume numbers started at volume 1. In July of 2000, the volume number is XXXII and the issue number was 7. The volume and issue numbering now is done by calendar year. The files are still in volume and date sequence. There are numerous errors with volume and issue numbers throughout. The folder level inventory notes where there are numbering inconsistencies. From 1971 to 1998, the size and format of the Campus Review varied from issue-to-issue. Those issues that are oversized are noted on the folder level inventory. The oversized issues are filed in one box together. See the Container List below to see the issues filed in the oversized box. Box 1 contains the Administrative and General Information folders. The finding aid for this collection is found in the Administrative folder.
