The Scroll newspaper has been in print since 1905, when BYU-Idaho was known as the Ricks Academy, a locally run school with a newly-developed high school program. At the time this newspaper was known as the “Student Rays,” and was printed monthly. In 1933 the name of the newspaper changed to “The Purple Flash.” In 1937 the name was changed again to “Viking Flashes,” and in 1938 the name finally changed to “The Viking Scroll.” The paper continued under this name until 1972, when it changed to “The Scroll.” The Scroll is still in print at BYU-Idaho as its official newspaper.
