Charles Sturt University's [CSU] main student-produced magazine is taking a new lease on life in 2021, with students both on campus and isolating at home bringing the Interp publication into a new age.
Dating back to 1971, Interp [short for Interprellator] has experienced numerous unique eras as a key platform for CSU students to publish material related to news, current affairs, lifestyle, entertainment, sport and campus culture.
But the current team, consisting of around a dozen CSU communications students, is re-interp-reting the publication for an internet-savvy, COVID-conscious environment.
"We're looking for more people to join the team, and are trying to broaden the appeal of Interp outside the realm of communications to other degrees," CSU fifth-year journalism student Emily Minney said.
"Interp is all about broad student representation and young, impassioned voices, regardless of what their interests and passions are."
First year journalism student Noah Secomb said the challenge of COVID-19 has actually helped students start the publication from scratch with fresh ideas.
"Before we started, we hadn't had any new student groups this year because of 'the Rona', so it's given us the ability to tackle this project with fresh minds and eyes," Mr Secomb said.
"As a lot of the team aren't currently in Bathurst, it has really pushed us to work on the online and social media side of Interp, which is obviously the direction media is taking these days."
Interp is published monthly, and will be open to advertising enquiries.
