Welcome to The Verse…

Who are we? What do we do? Why are we doing it? Read on to find out…

The University of Brighton has no equivalent. We work, rest and play at an educational establishment faced with a unique conundrum: five campuses, dotted all along the south coast, all hosting their own unique brand of interesting and innovative student populations. We are a creative, cosmopolitan and uninhibitedly cool bunch, blessed with both academic rigour and artistic flair, a diverse array of young people all eager to express themselves eloquently and effectively to the wider world. The problem, though, lies in finding a suitable outlet for this expression, one that can collate all these differing talents and teachings into a single, universal voice for such an expansive university.

The Verse is here to answer this problem. Our mission is to provide a platform for Brighton students, gifted in any discipline, to come together and showcase their talent. We want to move beyond the typical ‘student newspaper’ (dull) – our aim is to be completely original, utilise multimedia skills, and become a hub of Brighton University’s creative and academic achievement. We want writers, bloggers, film makers, photographers, artists, technicians, sociologists, athletes – anyone with an opinion who wants to get their voice heard. If you’ve got something to say, we’ll make people listen.
