Last Editorial: Goodbye Beaver!

Read More

By Taryana Odayar, Executive Editor.  This is my last ever Editorial – the very last one! Can you believe it?! Looking back over my time as Exec, I feel proud of everything we have achieved as an Editorial Board, and a sense of nostalgia for everything I will be giving up by stepping down. In my first ever Editorial as Exec, I said that, “No newspaper works in just one…

Editorial : On the Death of a Friend

Read More

By Taryana Odayar, Executive Editor. Don’t let the title of this Editorial put you off. I am not usually one to express grief so openly, and being only 21 years old I can say that I haven’t experienced too many instances of heartbreak or angst. But last week caught me off guard completely, because last week Adhil Bakeer Markar, a friend of mine who had just started his Masters at…

Editorial : This Week in News

Read More

By Taryana Odayar, Executive Editor.  Its already Week 3! Since last Tuesday, there have been some pretty interesting developments both at home and abroad,  so I thought I’d do a round up of the more riveting ones thus far. On Wednesday the 5th, Britain’s eurosceptic UKIP was plunged into chaos over party leader Diane James quitting, citing “personal and professional reasons”, only 18 days after being elected to the role….

By Taryana Odayar, Executive Editor.  And we are off! Welcome to yet another year at the LSE! What with Corbyn being recently re-elected leader of the Labour Party, Cruz’s Texan turnaround in endorsing Trump’s presidential candidacy, and His Holiness the Dalai Lama expressing his thoughts on Brad and Angelina’s split on British morning television, this already promises to be an interesting year for student journalism. Since taking up this position…

By Taryana Odayar, Executive Editor. We are thrilled to officially announce the launch of the LSE Beaver mobile app for iPhone! No newspaper works in just one medium any more, and this year we have made a concerted effort to take the Beaver from being a primarily print based newspaper, towards one that has a dynamic online and social media presence as well. With the launch of the Beaver mobile phone app, we…

Taryana Odayar on taking the wheel as the new Executive Editor

Read More

  By Taryana Odayar, Executive Editor.  Having watched my predecessors Jon, Alex and Ellen toil over the paper as Executive Editors, it has not been difficult to predict what being Exec will entail. It will mean spending every Sunday in the confines of the Beaver office, fleshing out the paper with single-minded resolve until getting unceremoniously kicked out of SSH by security at 10pm. It will mean giving up half…

The SU Are Ignoring Student Interests By Booking Out The Venue On Wednesday

Read More

The entire situation regarding the hiring of The Venue has highlighted issues with the way that the Union handles the AU and students more generally. Student satisfaction is well below the Russell Group average and currently the emphasis is on the School itself to implement changes. However, the hiring out of the Venue on a Wednesday night highlights the fact that the SU need to also look inward to solve…

Editorial: Welcome To LSE, Meet The Perfect The Beaver Contributor

In having this space to welcome new students to the LSE, I have found myself reflecting on what I would have wanted to hear when I was a fresher. Having come from a humble (read: terrible) Sixth Form, the hallowed halls of the London School of Economics felt a very intimidating location to take on the next stage of my education. I would never have anticipated myself even managing to…
