Editor’s Note Issue 13 20/2/12

We’re fast approaching that time in the union calendar where the real fun begins: Student Media Week, obviously. From next Monday the Steve Biko Building will become a shining temple of all things media-related. While we encourage students to get involved with the student paper, radio station and online TV channel all year round, we will be flaunting our goods to show you all the opportunities that are available.

On Wednesday the 29th February we’ll be holding the Student Media Fair, think Fresher’s Week but less elbowing your way from one side of the room to the other. We’ll be inviting speakers from a number of different sectors of the media industry to give you all an insight into how to get ahead.

For a more comprehensive list of events for the week turn to page 10. In addition to the fair The Mancunion will be running a number of events at Platt Chapel in Fallowfield, including our inaugural ‘Speed Hating’ session, where speed dating gets turned on its head.

It’s never too late to see your name in print, so pop into our office on the first floor of the Steve Biko Building. We’re in the Student Activities Centre.

Turning our steely gaze back to this issue we have the intriguing story of the graduates who, in the spirit of enterprise, have sold advertising space on their faces and made a bomb. For more on this turn to page 11.

In a sad farewell, we say goodbye to the Student Eye column. Our columnist Lloyd has now migrated to the Food and Drink and can be found there from next week. Turn to page 28 for the last dispatch from the Cynic-in-Chief. This time it’s internet memes that have attracted his considerable ire.

Hate is something of a theme this week, as our Music team take aim at the artists that really make them choke on their own scorn.

As ever, we’re always glad to hear what you the reader thinks, so get in touch by writing to [email protected]
