Since our creation in 2015, T’hud has strived to give the students of University of Huddersfield a platform to express themselves. Most of our writers are hoping to head into the world of media and communications come graduation, but some just want to share their passions and opinions.
Our focus is Huddersfield and our aim is to have our finger on the pulse of the town. University events make up most of our articles, but events within the general town are also a focus. We are proud to have a working relationship with Huddersfield Town, which grants our sports writers access to press conferences and games that few students get.
At the moment we have 9 writers 3 of whom will form the 2020/2021 committee:
