About Us

Leicester Student Magazine, first known as The Ripple in its original launch in 1957, was rebranded in July 2020 and now acts as a leading news outlet for University of Leicester students.

We aim to amplify voices from across the diverse student body and honour the rich legacy of student-led media at the university, by providing opportunities for students to publish written articles.

In our short history, we’ve received acknowledgement on both regional and national levels; you can stay up to date with what we do next on our socials.
