Hi there. Nice to meet you!

Please, don’t be scared; we’re not going to bite. We’re going to bring you a shiny, very readable magazine every fortnight instead. Long-time readers: this year, On Dit will be a little different, offering an entirely new perspective on all the crazy/amazing goings-on at the University of Adelaide and around the city itself. Expect well-written, long-form articles, controversial columnists, original illustrations and photographs, and a renewed focus on the kind of stuff that, like, actually appeals to you. On Dit has been around since 1932, making it the third-oldest student paper on this whole gosh-darned island. It’s changed a lot since those musty, sepia-toned days. It’s become smaller. Less frequently published. A lot of people seem to think it ain’t what it used to be. With your help, we want to give this ailing instituation a good ol' kick in the pants. Do you write?

Draw? Take photographs? Well then, help take the load off our weak li'l shoulders and get on board. Make us a pitch. We’re open-minded. The only thing we’ll insist on is no Twilight-related submissions, thank you very much. So, here’s to an exciting year. We hope to bring you all the news that’s fit to print (and some that probably isn’t). If you’re itching to contribute, email us at ondit@adelaide.edu.au. Or come in and say hello to us in the office (down the stairs, next to the Barr Smith Lawns). And you should totally have a look at www.auu.org.au/goto/ondit, our page on the AUU website, and our own newly launched website: www. ondit.com.au. Forever yours, Connor, Myriam, and Mateo
