October’s Most Read Articles

AUTUMN term is in full swing, and with the clocks going back and darker evenings upon is, it seems there is little choice but to crack on with work.

At The Spark, we released our second issue of the year on Friday 17 October. Our cover story was a report on the Oracle student lock-in, where thousands of students flocked for a late night shopping spree.

One post on the Quidditch World Cup, and another on stroke sufferers, continue to receive around 500 hits a day. Interestingly, an article from February on the Debate Society has been popular this month, now with over 43,000 views.

Here are October’s most read articles on our website:
