Student Media has produced many magazines over the years exploring a wide range of topics from diversity to global studies to health and well-being to career readiness to Mason athletics to the “best of Mason.” Each magazine is a unique student creation and represents a synthesis of writing, photography, graphic design, and journalistic reportage.
We are always open to creating new magazines that cover topics that are relevant to the lives of Mason students and welcome original ideas for new publications. Email us at email@example.com with your idea for the next great magazine!

Read Magazines from Student Media:
The latest from Student Media is the forthcoming Outlier that “explores matters of global human rights, domestic advocacy, and culture at the intersection of diversity within the LGBTQ community.” A cousin to a the 2011 publication, Out Loud, Outlier was an original idea brought to Student Media that we helped make a reality through funding, technological support, and faculty guidance.

Freshman Focus Magazine
Freshman Focus is a Student Media magazine created for freshmen, by freshmen, publishing the stories and experiences of first-year Mason students in their own words. First published in 2013 as the result of a successful AEMC grant proposal, Freshman Focus offers incoming and prospective students a look into what freshman year is like at George Mason University by showcasing personal stories of struggle and success, the “ins and outs” of college life, and a handy guide to campus resources. Freshman have the opportunity to join the magazine’s staff and create content during their first and second semesters for publication in later spring or early summer. The third edition of Freshman Focus was published in June 2016.
Witness & Memory Magazine
Throughout fall 2015 and spring 2016, Student Media partnered with Mason’s School of Art to produce Witness & Memory, a magazine that captures Mason students’ involvement and reaction to the Al-Mutanabbi Starts Here DC 2016 project. The magazine showcases original student artwork and responses to the AMSSH cultural festival that included gallery exhibits, a live street fair, poetry readings, lectures, and guest artists at Mason and throughout the Washington, D.C. region.
Originally created in 2005 by a group of students and faculty advisors, the first issue of VoxPop explored Mason’s designation as the most diverse campus in America. Subsequent issues have tackled a wide range of topics including health and well-being, career readiness, environmental sustainability, gender and sexuality, global studies, music, the historic 2008 presidential election, and “the best of Mason.” Student editors from VoxPop were invited to present their work at the annual ACP National College Media Conventions in Washington, D.C. and New York City and the magazine was the recipient of the 2007 University Life Innovations Award. Since its inception, 15 unique issues have been released under the VoxPop masthead.
