About The Gander
The aim of 'The Gander' is Tto produce (initially online) a quarterly student news product, with stories researched, edited and written by students, covering news, sports, entertainment, investigative pieces and opinion and comment with a focus on the student experience at Northampton.
We want to provide Northampton students with the benefits of an independent student Newspaper, in the best tradition of student journalism.
We offer valuable opportunities for students interested in Journalism to gain experience and provide the same opportunity as students at older institutions, who benefit both academically and in work experience from access to a student newspaper experience.
We wish Tto provide a voice for marginalised groups, especially BAME, LGBTQ+, mature and disabled students, providing opportunities and a forum for students from those backgrounds to raise issues of particular concern to them and to increase their voice on campus.
We have an open submission policy, soliciting contributions from any and all students, with a view to ensuring a diverse range of voices.
All of our clubs and societies are run by a committee.
A committee is a team of people that lead, organise and publicise a group within your Students’ Union.
It can be really rewarding as well as being a great way to gain experience and invaluable skills for your future career.
