Salient is a magazine. Salient is a website. Salient is an institution founded in 1938 to cater to the whim and fancy of students of Victoria University. We are partly funded by VUWSA and partly by gold bullion that was discovered under a pile of old Salients from the 40's.
Salient welcomes your participation in debate on all the issues that we present to you, and if you're a student of Victoria University then you're more than welcome to drop in and have tea and scones with the contributors of this little rag in our little hideaway that overlooks Wellington.

*Interview with Colin Craig* Do you miss being the leader of the Conservative Party? Yes, but I miss lying in the grass seductively even more. Do you think you will go to jail for harassing your staff member? Maybe, which is super awkward considering how long I’ve advocated for harsher punishments. Lol! What’s it like […]
