"Teenage Wasteland": College Newspaper

The first edition of the College newspaper - entitled Teenage Wasteland after a line in The Who song Baba O'Riley was released on 26 February 2008. The irreverent and satirical nature of the newspaper did not go down too well with some of the staff[citation needed] but students seemed to support the newspaper[citation needed]. This publication is student run (with all costs covered by the editors), but positive immediate responses indicated that the college was to pay for future issues[citation needed].

However, by July 2009, funding for the paper had not been secured. The final issue was released in July 2009 with an extended editorial section in which the editors reflected on their time at the college.
