Candid Magazine is a student-run biannual publication focusing on art, fashion and editorial. This magazine gives students the opportunity to create content outside the classroom and focus on ideas and issues that interest them. Our students come from all parts of the university community and work together as a professional group to write stories, produce photo shoots, create interesting illustrations and artworks, and design dynamic layouts that compile this professional magazine.  

Pick up copies of Candid in the Arts Center in the second-floor hallway beside AC 242.

Faculty Advisor: Rob Dickes.
