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.

As I am held at gunpoint forced by both Bad Memes and Salient to write this article, all I can say is one thing: Bad Memes for Suffering Victoria University Teens is, was, and will always be, an absolute shit show. That isn’t a new concept, or even particularly interesting or surprising, all things considered. […]
