Editorial

September 15, 2019

An issue on the status quo. We wanted to focus on the idea that the current state of things are to be maintained. What has been, will always be. Default is much the same. The grey, the emotionless smile, the pre-existing Player 1 logic.   Usually, these editorials throw shots at Massey or Critic, but […]

Last week, it was a late night so after work some of the crew went to Lulu. If you don’t know where Lulu is, don’t come because there’s already a line outside on Saturdays and I’m not tryna wait any longer to get inside.   It was my round, so I went to the bar […]

“We sweat and cry salt water so that we know the ocean is really in our blood.” – Teresia Teaiwa.    We dedicate this issue to our fiery canoe, the late Dr Teresia Teaiwa.    A champion for our peoples.    Wan Solwara—the name of this edition is pidgin for ‘one salt water’, meaning one […]

You’re now in the hardest part of this Victorian holiday. Part Two. Part One had us feeling lost after orientation.

Whether this is your first time at university or your fifth, we want you to remember that Salient is here for you, regardless of where you come from. Living and breathing in a university is its own journey. You’ll walk alongside the local activists, the shy internet guys, the athletic Instagram models, and the, “I […]

It’s my last editorial for Salient ever. Crazy huh, it’s already been a year. Someone told me once that you experience time as a proportion of the number of years you have lived, and even though I have absolutely nothing to back it up with I’m gonna keep repeating this statement to everyone I know […]

Last week I talked to Gerard, head of student counselling. I really like Gerard. He’s one of the few staff I’ve interacted with who tries hard to engage with student media, and communicate to students. He always makes time for us to try help us understand the situation around student counselling and student mental health. […]
