Story: Magazines and periodicals



University student magazines began in the 1920s and provided news, opinion, satire and critical commentary on university and wider social and cultural matters. A perennial theme of the magazines has been promoting students' rights and access to higher education. This 2012 cover from the University of Auckland student magazine Craccum follows that tradition.
