Student-Run. Student-Written. Student-Published.

The New College Review, an annual nonfiction magazine, is an initiative of the students of New College who are solely responsible for its timely production, publication, and distribution. Any University of Alabama student may enroll in NEW 338/339, a workshop class designed to provide guidance and assistance to the New College Review staff as they write, edit, and produce the Review. This class is designed to show students how to produce a publication from planning to printing to distribution. Students on the New College Review staff will gain experience in several areas of their choosing: writing, editing, photography, graphic design, and public relations.


Each issue of the New College Review centers around a theme of the staff’s choosing.
Recent themes include:New College Review cover showing the word Janus above a woman's face reflected in two directions
