You can chooseour name!
While „blank“ is the official title of our first issue, we have to admit thatthis is more of a temporary solution. Not that we couldn‘t come up with acreative name ourselves. No, no! In fact, we’ve had creative juices flowing allover the place (for that pun, see table of contents). We ended up having 5 dif-ferent but equally creative names on our list of possible titles. That’s whereyou, dear reader of these lines, can step in and make yourself heard. We de-cided that you may carry the burden of choosing what will possibly becomethe greatest student magazine of North Hesse. What will it be? The winneris chosen from all participants of our online poll and gets a gift certificate forhis favorite books at Unibuch.
This is actually the most uncontroversial name we could come up with. Still,if you’re unable to comprehend why „uniliterate“ might be a name for a stu-dent paper, please do us a favor and refrain from further studying at ourdepartment.
Historically, vulgar means „of or pertaining to the common people“, althoughit is mostly known as „rude“. Somehow, this would also be very fitting for thisproject. Or as one of the founders of this paper once put it „What we reallydon‘t want, is a dozen boring reports about study abroads, or the thousandthprotest against tuition fees. We all know they are bad, get over it!“.
This one is going to stick in your memory, and like vulgar it has Latin roots.Now there is an interesting coincidence; while for our new curriculums wedon’t need the
anymore, it somehow seems to be all the more inter-esting to the studying folks in the department. This one for example standsfor action and change.
Pronounced “Libro-teens”. Again originating in Latin, “Libro” means “book”,but in our case its more of a “Libertines”, meaning free people unrestrainedby morale and sanctions imposed by society. It has a great vibe to it.
Students have interesting thoughts (S.H.I.T.). Apart from the not-so-subtiledouble meaning of this name, it really is “the shit”! Plus, it makes for goodcategories. Creative writing would be “creative SHIT”, excursion reports be-come “foreign SHIT”, and opinion pieces are simply “bull SHIT”. My favor-ites are articles about religion: “holy SHIT”.
