Been studying in Swinburne for almost 3 years, I never seen any published articles or magazines made by the students - or maybe Swinburne Sarawak Newspaper. I was expecting something like that before I start my studies because it an Australian university and I have a high expectation of the campus having a weekly or monthly magazines. Obviously not happening here.
Maybe it's because of the culture here or the current economy situation where publishing a magzine is quite costly. Another big downturn is would anybody willingly to grab one of it?
With that kind of dilemma, there is almost no chance to even publish a single issue of magazine. But thanks a lot to the technology nowadays, this problem has came to an end. We have SwinTalk!!!
