The magazine is produced by the Students’ Association and run by your dashing, daring and all around charming editorial team with the intention of showcasing the talent of the UTS student population and keeping them up to their eyeballs in awesome infotainment.
That means that we are your go to source of information for what’s happening on campus.
Yes, we are the place you look when you have ten minutes spare at uni and want to read something other than your lecture notes for that really hard subject you do that has such a staggeringly boring name that it makes you want to vomit.
We are what you pick up when you are staring at your assignment schedule and just need a sudoku hit to numb the pain of your increasingly stressful life. We are your commuting companion, your breakfast browse, your pub-wait publication. Basically, it’s a magazine for you.
But we are also a publication by you as well and in order to keep going as your student magazine we need content that you have written and we need lots of it. We need content the way your primary school teacher probably needed valium. So if you blog or draw or write little notes in your textbook that you think are worthy of a wider audience, you should get in contact with us.
Even if you haven’t written anything for us yet but think that you can be of some use get in contact with us by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
So take this opportunity to read Vertigo, write for Vertigo and to generally be engaged with a cornerstone of student life here at UTS.

Rebka Bayou If my life was the song ‘Monster’ by Kanye West, 2014 would've been Jay Z’s verse. In other words, my first year at university was a pretty shitty part of my otherwise almost perfect life. A lot of that had to do with me not being able to adapt to the uni lifestyle properly. I
Have you ever seen one of those cliché coming of age movies? You know, the ones where a mellow song comes on just as the protagonist is staring out of the car window questioning life pensively? Well, much of my three-week bus trip from Zambia, to Cape Town was a constant priceless movie moment. The
James Wilson By now most, if not all, beer-swilling, proudly drunk Australians are fully aware of the Coopers’ induced brouhaha that exploded over social media like a freshly shaken can of VB. Lasting slightly longer than a Splendour-induced-bender, it was resolved by Coopers apologising — for a third time — and committing to support Marriage Equality
Navira Trimansyah Art: Sagar Aardash 'Star Wars'. A classic franchise worshipped across generations, defined by one of the greatest plot twists of all time. As much as I loved its gripping tale of good versus evil, the prevailing of justice, and Han Solo’s wittiness, there was one thing lacking throughout the first six movies: diverse representation. If we

Voiceworks Issue #108 – Retrograde 'Voiceworks' is looking for new fiction from Australian writers under
Michael Zacharatos Often jokingly denounced for encouraging the myth that UTS has any semblance of a social life, Summerfest is one of the university’s two annual social festivals hosted by the UTS non-profit organisation, ActivateUTS. It provides what you’d hope to get from any major university party: impressive local lineups dispersed across a variety of stages,
