The Owl Magazine

Owl Magazine is published twice during the fall and spring semesters, offering the campus community articles of general interest, opinion pieces, entertainment stories and reviews, features pieces, sports articles, and articles on fashion and health.

The student work is recognized at the annual Owlsy Awards, a competition honoring achievements in writing, editing, photography, and design with Owl Magazine.

Students interested in gaining experience in print journalism may serve on the staff as graphic designers, writers, editors, photographers, business managers, and computer technicians. Students interested in writing for Owl Magazine may register for 1-3 credits of Mass Communications Independent Study or may enroll in MC 208: College Magazine Production I (3 credits). Students who have successfully completed MC 208 are encouraged to register for MC 209: College Magazine Production II (3 credits). No previous journalism experience is necessary, and students do not have to be enrolled in journalism courses to participate.

Joe Rein - Owl Staffer Spotlight


By Adeyemi Ekundayo, Owl Magazine Staff


Joe Rein is an Owl Magazine intern who joined the staff in the fall of 2017 to complete his Mass Communications field project. He cites the magazine’s flexibility and travel opportunities as personal highlights, referencing trips to New York and Washington D.C. His work includes on-air reporting, photography, videography, video editing, writing, and design. He has covered topics ranging from the Hindu Festival of Lights to the privatization of the prison industry. He encourages other students to complete their field project with Owl Magazine because it’s on campus and students get to do a little bit of everything even if they have no prior experience.
