UNLV's newspaper Rebel Yell gets new name

Posted at 7:11 PM, Nov 29, 2016

Say goodbye to Rebel Yell  and hello to The Scarlet & Grey Free Press, the new name of UNLV's college newspaper.

"It's been a long-standing issue for the past  few years," said Jacob Lasky, the paper's arts and entertainment editor.

The change of name comes after many students and university faculty complained that the original name was too controversial.

"I think it's a good idea that we switched it to reflect more of our diversity of our campus and our staff," said Lasky.

For students, the change of name also came with a history lesson.  

In the meantime, the newspaper faces financial  problems...  And still has to figure out how to solve those to keep printing.
