Ylioppilaslehti (Finnish: lit. "Student newspaper") is a Finnish student newspaper founded in 1913. The magazine is published by a private company Ylioppilaslehden kustannus Oy that is owned by the Student Union of the University of Helsinki. It is the largest student paper or magazine in Finland with a circulation of 35,000 copies. In addition to affairs related to university studies, it covers areas such as culture and social issues.

History[edit]

In the 1920s and 1930s, during which the student union of the university was in total control of the nationalistic Academic Karelia Society, Ylioppilaslehti often took a stance against the Swedish language and communism. In the post-war period the paper oriented towards supporting western democracy whilst becoming increasingly left-wing during the Cold War era.
