We cover stories from around campus, Brighton and national higher education. We try to find original stories and make them suitable and interesting to the student body. We're constantly on the snoop for stories and events so make sure to keep us informed if you hear of anything.


Features - badgerfeatureseditor@gmail.com

The paper will be running in-depth fortnightly features on a diverse range of topics. These have included subjects such as student anxieties, mental health issues, contemporary social causes and much much more!


Comment - badger-opinion@sussexstudent.com 

We welcome and include comment pieces about national, international and local issues. Anything you want to celebrate, criticise or discuss is welcome. We also have a weekly 'Big Debate' where two students present arguments for and against a topical statement. This could vary from 'East Slope Bar vs Falmer Bar' to the intricacies and controversies of supporting a British monarchy. You can also write us a letter about a topic you feel passionate about. This section gives you a free reign to express yourself.
