Students Get Their Say On The WWW

New Zealand's first comprehensive student website launched on Monday, finally providing an online resource that meets student expectations.

"Students have been demanding a decent, one-stop website for some time. Now they have it with www.studentz.co.nz.

Incorporating important news articles, information on universities, multimedia competitions and discussion groups the site is informative, educational and cool", says Spencer Willis, the site coordinator.

The Studentz.co.nz site has a diverse range of information from the political, the practical, to the down right stupid.

Students are being encouraged to get involved in the site to ensure the site is a true representation of New Zealand students.

"Student input is really important. We want the site to be written by students for students. We have already had some great feedback from students, with one girl saying 'best site for people my age I've seen so far.' Which is just great to hear", adds Spencer.

Studentz.co.nz provides a forum for students to discuss issues that directly effect them, and aims to be the premium online resource for New Zealand students.

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
