About us

'Big Mouth' on Campus
Te Waha Nui means "The Big Mouth", but we're not bragging - instead we only hope the talent comes across loud and clear. Te Waha Nui is a regular newspaper featuring stories on a wide range of topics. Published as part of the Editing and Design (semester one) and News Production (semester two) courses, all stories and pages are written, subbed and designed by AUT journalism students.
