The Bournemouth Rock has covered a new initiative to help tackle antisocial behaviour caused by students.
It is hoped Bournemouth University will be included as part of the plans, ensuring all parties work together to help resolve disturbances.
Tazz Gault, news editor, explained the reasoning behind leading on this particular story.
“We wanted the front page to show – in detail – the way in which the university is working hard to integrate itself with the community.
“As this was the last edition of the year, we wanted it to have a great, diverse range of stories from the university and the wider community.”
Vikki Hutton, features editor, described this edition as “huge”, ready to provide a number of talking points.
Reflecting on World AIDS Day, which took place on 1 December, the newspaper aims to educate readers about the final stage of the HIV disease.
Vikki said, “With around 100,000 people in the UK suffering from the disease – and 25,000 of those not aware they have it – it was important to use this opportunity to raise awareness.”
Vikki also caught up with Paralympian Ben Rushgrove to discuss his path to athletic acclaim, how he lives with cerebral palsy, and his hopes for Rio 2016.
Rushgrove, who won a bronze medal in the T36 Men’s 200m at the London 2012 Paralympic Games, is visiting Bournemouth University on Friday.
This edition’s sport section will also have a special look at the nominees for this year’s hotly contested Sports Personality of the Year.
The paper is now available to pick up free on any Bournemouth University campus and at Asda in Lansdowne.
