The JEC Chronicle
Jorhat Engineering College possesses the unique distinction of being the first educational institution in the entire North East India to have pioneered the publication of its own campus newspaper ‘JECnews’ way back in 1989. Despite being a full time professional college, JEC managed to score this unique record in the journalistic history of Assam and this part of India by publishing the campus newspaper 'JECnews', but it was closed because of some unwanted reasons. After 22 years ‘The JEC Chronicle’ was published in JEC campus. This newsletter is not exactly like JECnews that was published in 1989 but the idea and the motive stood to be the same.
Envisioned to weave the different spheres of college life together, and acquaint one and all about everything that one ought to know while in JEC, this newsletter is an attempt to keep JEC at par with other institutions worldwide. The team here at JEC leaves no stone unturned to ensure that each and every student has access to the latest update in the college. Starting from college events and placement statistics, anything found relevant for a Joencovite is broadcasted, either through our editions, released twice a year or simply through the JEC website. Being the only newspaper society of JEC, we make it our prime responsibility to report all happenings in the college, covering every issue with the lenses of impartiality. Each edition is freshly handmade, with a pinch of creativity and loads of innovation and deliberation, keeping enough room for the latest buzz and trivia. Any major happening in college – students winning various competitions in college events to an eminent person visiting our college, everything is reported carefully and informatively to keep the students up-to-date every single time. The successfully released various editions over the years covering all necessary information stand as a testimony to the versatility in our journalism over decades. Originally, a student initiative, eventually ‘The JEC Chronicle’ has seen an expansion in not only its team of journalists, but also in the readership, arenas covered and reach.
