It’s pretty common for universities to have a student-run newspaper and a yearbook, and ours, of course, are excellent. But until I started compiling this list, I didn’t realize what a wide variety of other student publications we have on campus. They showcase student research, journalism, literary and artistic talent, and more. (And they’re practically indistinguishable from professionally produced magazines that have much bigger budgets and staffs that aren’t also going to school full-time.) ⇒ The Cauldron http://www.cauldron.neu.edu/ Back issues available online through the Internet Archive! Publishing frequency: Annual Established in: 1917 About: Northeastern University Yearbook ⇒ ECONPress http://www.econpress.org/index.php/econpress Publishing frequency: Twice a year Established in: 2010 About: “ECONPress is a student-run undergraduate research publication that is published twice a year at the beginning of each fall and spring semesters. Each issue features the best economic research of undergraduate students in the local Boston area. ECONPress provides a forum for the economic undergraduate community to engage in active discussion and debate about the topics, theories, and applications they’ve learned in the classroom. Students may submit within three different categories: articles, essays, and research papers. In addition to the publication, ECONPress hosts a biannual conference where authors will have a chance to present their research to the local economic community. Invited authors featured in ECONPress will have the opportunity to present their findings as part of an itinerary that includes a prominent economist. At ECONPress we hope to assist in the preparation of the next generation of economists by providing current undergraduate students a resource to experience and engage in a significant part of the professional research field.” ⇒ The Huntington News http://huntnewsnu.com/ Publishing frequency: Weekly during fall and spring semesters; biweekly during summer Established in: 1926 About: “For 82 years, The Northeastern News was a major source of news at Northeastern University. Now known as The Huntington News, the paper went independent from the university and relocated its office to a leased space at 295 Huntington Avenue in the summer of 2008. In the new space, undergraduate students work alongside Northeastern alumni to maintain the high standard of quality the community has come to expect from its student newspaper.The News is published on Thursdays during the fall and spring semesters with more than 50 students contributing to its production. During the summer semesters, it is published every other Wednesday. The News is the most frequently published and well-read publication on campus. It features news, sports, entertainment and editorial sections, as well as a rotating special section with alternating subject matter.” ⇒ Northeastern University Political Review http://www.nupoliticalreview.com/ Publishing frequency: Quarterly in print with more frequent web updates Established in: 2009 About: “The Northeastern University Political Review seeks to be a nonpartisan platform for students to publish essays and articles of the highest possible caliber on contemporary domestic and international politics, as well as critical reviews of political media. The Political Review aspires to foster a culture of intelligent political discourse among interested individuals while promoting awareness of political issues in the campus community. The organization envisions itself as a place where students with a common interest in politics and world affairs may come together to discuss and develop their views and refine their opinions. The Political Review hopes to reflect the diversity of thought and spirit at Northeastern, including the dual ethic of academic and experiential education our school embodies.” ⇒ NUScience http://www.facebook.com/pages/Nu-Science-Magazine/ Publishing frequency: Twice a semester Established in: 2009 About: “NU Science is Northeastern University’s first ever on-campus science magazine.

Each issue includes a wide variety of original material submitted by students and faculty. Spectrum’s editors and members work to publish the magazine three times per year: an issue at the end of both the Fall and Spring semesters, and a calendar issue at the beginning of the school year. With the continued efforts of its editors, members, and generous submitters, Spectrum tries to spread the appreciation of literary and visual art.” ⇒ Tastemakers http://tastemakersmag.com/ Publishing frequency: Bimonthly Established in: 2007 About: “tastemakers magazine provides northeastern university students with the opportunity to comment on and interact with the music industry. we print a bi-monthly magazine, publish on the web, produce the tastemakers presents concert series, and host a podcast on iTunes, tastemakers radio. our goal is to bring honest, informed opinions to our readers and help our members develop their craft.” Other student publications that have existed in recent years include The Onyx Informer, The NU Patriot, and Times New Roman, but I was unable to find up-to-date information about them. If you are involved in any of these publications and know that they are still actively publishing, please leave a comment and I’ll update the post. Or, if there are student-run publications (either print or online) that aren’t in this post at all, leave a comment about that, too!
