Couldn’t make it to our launch party? Or just want to be nosey and see pictures from the launch? I’ve put together a quick sum up of the Ruskin Journal along with how the launch went, accompanying it with pictures from our photographers!
How did we get to where we are today? The Ruskin Journal was created by Elle Haywood and Hanushka Karnani in 2017. They founded the idea on the basis that they wanted to create the first online newspaper here at Anglia Ruskin University which obviously, has succeeded VERY well! With the success of the online newspaper, the 2017 committee aspired to create the first Annual Print Edition of the Ruskin Journal. With copious amounts of work put in, fresh new articles from all members and help from University staff, the Physical Paper (all 1500 copies!) was ready for launch throughout Graduation Week in October 2018.
The theme for the paper is student life. With articles ranging from graduating to work experience to leisurely articles regarding film and music – there is an article for everyone to relate too.
The launch party was a great way for the old and new committee to meet and celebrate the success of the Physical Paper; being able to finally share with students, parents and lecturers. With glasses of prosecco and copies of the paper scattered around, it was a fab way to have everyone involved all in one place.
Rolling forward to week 5 of the semester and we have enrolled almost 30 new members. It is great to see how the Ruskin Journal has expanded throughout the year and we cannot wait to see what happens next.
If you are interested in writing for the Ruskin Journal, feel free to drop me or any other committee members an email! (All details found on the website)
