Why the Westbank Journal?

westbank-001What’s behind the name?

Sure, there’s the obvious geographical tie of The Westbank Journal: CLC’s Brainerd campus is on the west bank of the Mississippi River. The Staples campus, you guessed it, falls on the west bank of the Crow Wing River.

But The Westbank Journal has even deeper roots here at Central Lakes College.

It was a student-operated campus newspaper, which first hit the stands in the late 1970s. It started out as The Westbank Review, taking its current name in the mid-80s. In its prime, the publication put out full newspapers, fliers and information notices. Beverage companies and local businesses even placed large advertisements on the pages.  After funding dried up, the operation came to a close in 2011.
