Varsity goes digital

14 May 2009

UCT's student newspaper, Varsity, launched its website on 5 May to make it easily accessible to a wider readership. Varsity's deputy editor, Zerene Haddad, said the fortnightly publication prints only 6 000 copies of each edition. "But our readership is much higher that that." She said that a census conducted a few years ago showed that the paper had about 15 000 readers. The site resembles a blogsite rather than a website, with readers able to comment on articles and communicate directly with each other and with staff writers. It is updated every fortnight, when the relevant edition of Varsity is published.
