Hyde magazine

Hyde Magazine is a student publication presented by Victoria University’s Student Union.

Hyde is a university magazine that engages with its community and the world through the lenses of politics, society, health, art and entertainment.

Its tone is serious enough to generate discussion, but light enough to read during lunch.
