Alex Wilkinson ’13 has decided he wants to get involved with writing on campus for a change:

By showcasing creative, engaging pieces from a variety of academic fields and personal backgrounds, we seek to channel the diverse array of student perspectives, experiences, and knowledge endemic to the intellectual vitality of our campus. Fundamental to this endeavor is an emphasis on collaboration between writers and editors, a process we feel is essential to producing polished, innovative work.
If you’re interested in writing, editing, or taking photography for The Argus Magazine, come talk to us. We hope to see you tomorrow!

Alex Wilkinson ’13, not to be confused with Colonel William Alexander Camac Wilkinson of Sydney or Alex Wilkinson of Herbert Smith Corporate Responsibility, is trying to start a new student publication on campus, and he is thinking of naming it after Argus Panoptes:
The Argus Magazine is a new student-produced publication focusing on—but not limited to—long-form nonfiction and journalism. We seek writing of all genres so long as it is engaging, creative, and intellectually stimulating. Fundamental to this endeavor is an emphasis on collaboration between writers and editors, a process that will produce polished, innovative work.
