In 1991, Bryce McIntyre left rural Oregon in the United States for a job at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. He was tasked with setting up an English language news practicum. Here, he tells us how his original idea for a student-produced English tabloid newspaper, published four days a week, was rejected and how Varsity magazine was born instead.
Varsity is an award-winning magazine created for the tertiary students and faculty of Hong Kong. It is written, edited and designed by students in the School of Journalism and Communication at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
