The Netted Gem, the student newspaper of the University of Prince Edward Island, was founded on November 3, 1983. It was the successor to the UPEI Sun. U.P.E.I. news, news from other universities, sports, humour, and feature articles were all printed in the Netted Gem. Issues of concern included student loans, high tuition fees and unemployment. The Netted Gem also protested against smoking, sexism and conditions in the Third World. Photographs were printed in every issue of the paper. The Netted Gem was succeeded by The Gem in January of 1986.
