This month’s stand-out publication is The Cambridge Student, one of the University of Cambridge’s quality student newspapers.
While its website may not be much to look at, the content is always engaging. In March, The Cambridge Student widely covered the two-and-a-half year suspension of a PhD student for interrupting a David Willetts speech. The team followed up the story with coverage of subsequent protests, petitions and Willetts’ response.
The paper, which focuses on news specific to the university, also carried out an investigation into the so-called ‘pervert don’ and reported on the protests against a talk by Dominique Strauss-Kahn at the university.
On a more light-hearted note, writers have examined why we love pirates so much and whether it is right for Cambridge to have such short (eight week) terms.
News, features and comment are complimented by thorough Cambridge sports coverage and reviews of theatre, film and music. There is even a section dedicated to scientific discoveries by the university’s researchers.
