The Core Journal

The Journal of the Core Curriculum is a student-produced anthology of exemplary writing by the students and faculty of the Core. For each issue, the editors select works of academic and imaginative writing, which engage deeply the topics and texts encountered in the Core. The Journal is published annually in April, and is available at no cost to members of the Core community and to interested members of the public. To request a copy, contact the staff.

From the Editor’s Note, Spring 2018:

In preparing this note, I looked at what editors from previous issues have written. My predecessors made many valiant attempts to define, describe, and outline the Core experience. For my part, over the past two years here in our community of learning, I have found the following truths to be self-evident: Core is the study of beautiful things. Core is sacred air serene, where love with those fair eyes opened my heart. Core, if it had an aroma, would smell of vinegar and Keurig coffee. Core has a color. (I do not know its wavelength.) . . .
