EDITORIAL: Tell the Uni where they can stick their rubbish fines

Posted 3:41pm Sunday 2nd May 2021 by Erin Gourley

Yeah, that’s right, I’m the Proctor and I will impose a daily fine on you if you don’t clean up the rubbish and broken glass outside your flat.  That’s what could happen if you don’t submit against the University’s proposed changes to the Code of Conduct. Read more...

EDITORIAL: Please someone open a bakery near campus

Posted 12:15pm Monday 26th April 2021 by Erin Gourley

Look I don’t really understand how businesses work and I’m not going to pretend I do. This is less of a valid opinion, and more of a personal fantasy of mine. My demand is simple: I want a bakery near campus. Not a cafe with overpriced scones and slices. A bakery that is overflowing Read more...

EDITORIAL: Sign Up Club Should Absolutely Not Take Over OUSA’s Meeting

Posted 8:42pm Sunday 18th April 2021 by Erin Gourley

I repeat, Sign Up Club should NOT take over the OUSA Student General Meeting that is taking place on Wednesday 21 April at 12pm in Union Hall. It would be VERY BAD if Sign Up Club sent say a hundred members of their pyramid scheme, and their members voted as a bloc making up over 50% of the Read more...

EDITORIAL | I Like The Richardson Building

Posted 1:58pm Saturday 6th March 2021 by Erin Gourley

Some of you will hate me for what I’m about to write. But it has to be said. The best building on the Otago campus is not the clocktower. It’s the Richardson Building. This looming, brutalist beast is the image that should show up as the Air New Zealand icon for Dunedin. The Read more...

EDITORIAL | Students Were Exploited In Orchard Work

Posted 4:11pm Tuesday 2nd March 2021 by Erin Gourley

Orchards called on uni students to make money picking and packing. Students were not prepared for the exploitative working environment they walked into.   When students set off for the orchards of Central Otago and beyond, it had been a rough year already.

Posted 2:25am Friday 3rd May 2019 by Charlie O’Mannin

The OUSA Referendum is always boring as shit and no one ever submits any questions. Mostly because it seems like it takes actual time and effort and requires a passion for student politics that most people simply don’t have. The thing is, it’s not that hard to get stuff added to the Read more...

Posted 12:36am Friday 15th March 2019 by Charlie O’Mannin
