You don’t have to worry if you don’t study subjects like Media or Journalism. Our team study a range of subjects such as History, Urban Planning, English, Classics, Politics and Business. We cover serious news stories relating to university life, such as when two students were hospitalised after an university experiment went wrong. If you have an idea that you think students would love to read about such as that there are over 19,000 people watching a puddle online, or that there has been a raunchy S&M house party near by, write about it. In case you haven’t heard, our team are quite the creative bunch, coming up with ideas such as how to get hammered in a lecture, a feature that got over 850,000 views.
