Zak Kirwood ’12 sends in information about Wesleyan’s most totally underrated campus media source:
The oldest continuously published student-run progressive publication in the Northeast needs editors, graphic designers, revolutionaries, and submissions! Hermes was founded in 1975 by a group of student activists as an alternative to the school newspaper, the Argus. These days we try to provide a more political, critical, and analytical outlet for campus opinion.
We publish about seven issues a year, with material ranging from campus life, photo essays, short fiction, and opinion pieces, but we tend to focus on activism and social commentary from a variety of viewpoints.
Hermes is organized in a collective, non-hierarchical, informal manner. We have no editors-in-chief, no restrictions on staff, and no censorship; all decisions are made by the entire staff. Hermes is a forum for ideas. Anyone is welcome to participate.
