My college magazine
College students are likely in need of more information than simply the academic knowledge imparted to them by their universities. Undeniably, as the saying goes: “learning without play makes one dumb”, there is always a need to relax. This is what a college magazine is supposed to offer the student body of several universities today.
Magazine, as the noted reputation of the reading material, is an entertaining paper that does more than just inform but also opens the minds of the readers to fresh thoughts that are aimed to relax their minds from all the stresses of their daily schedule. This reputation then is to be carried along with in terms of creating a college magazine.
Considerably, it should then be expected that a college magazine could actually be marked as a primary source of entertaining information for the relaxation of the students as well as the administrative body of the said education institutions in focus. In this regard, the college magazine to be suggested herein is to present several features to the readers which include the elements that follow:
Activity Calendar for School Activities for the Whole Year: this section shall introduce to the readers the different line of activities that they are to expect during the whole year, allowing them to prepare themselves for the said coming events.
Feature articles about student life (e.g surviving college; article for non-American learners; motivational thought for students): this section is designed to help students cope with their lives in the universities. It is through this that learners realize that they are indeed assisted by the administration and their co-students in their struggle to survive the challenges of coming up with good grades to graduate from school. This section shall aim to increase the interest of the students into learning and applying their lessons in real life through a motivational approach.
Administrational Message for the Students (for inspirational and motivational purposes): this aims to help reconnect the gap between the administration and the students. This shall help both parties understand each others’ needs and demands so as to be able to create possible ways to inject unity within the campus environment.
Specialized sections for the different colleges offered in the university: these sections are brief presentations of what’s new regarding the different colleges in the school. This will help the students know of their schoolmates’ activities even through they do not belong to the same colleges creating camaraderie among all.
Fashion section: this section is simply for fun. Likely, the process is more inclined to helping the students relax themselves through fashion ideas which may be applicable within the school grounds.
Joke and humor: like the fashion section, this is also aimed in creating relaxation among readers.
From the features presented herein, it could be noted that the college magazine suggested herein actually aims not only to inform but also to create motivational measures, as well as relaxation mediums to aide the students in surviving college life. To go along with the features, the magazine shall be named Collegiate Shield and the distribution shall be held at least twice a year.
