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 2017:

I constantly talk about Core, but when asked what Core is, I struggle to find the right words. Core is an experience, and like all the best experiences, it is complex, multi-faceted, and accompanied by the occasional piece of chocolate. It is this virtuous complexity which evades description . . .
