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.

Share your Housewife and Kardashian-ridden indulgences and I won’t judge; I can probably beat them. Truth is, I’ve always lived for the ‘real’ drama:

Eugenia Alabasinis The capacity of YA sci-fi novels to entrench readers between pages, reaches beyond a fantastical glance into what may be possible in a few generations time. The greatest strength of these stories is their reminder that in any time or place, human nature remains largely unchanged. In this first edition of ‘A Novel Escape’
Tristan White The University of Sydney has gone into emergency lockdown after the campus was suddenly swamped with students from the University of Technology, Sydney.
