The Barnard Bulletin is Barnard College's lifestyle magazine. It was founded in 1901 as a weekly student newspaper focusing on campus events, Columbia life, and administrative news. Former editors include anthropologist Margaret Mead, '25, and The Glass Castle author Jeanette Walls, '84. As a newspaper, The Bulletin covered important events such as student marches against police brutality in Selma in 1965, and the controversy of Columbia going co-ed in 1983. Today, we retain our focus on pressing matters, such as Barnard's transgender admittance policy and divestment.
At the same time, we like to paint a diverse picture of both college and city life, through our five sections: Health & Style, Features, Politics & Opinion, Arts & Entertainment, and New York City Living. Our Health & Style section allows students to share their favorite trends and question larger issues about sexual health and the beauty industry. In Arts & Entertainment we explore phenomenons in pop music, as well as the scoop on the latest and greatest in art galleries, Broadway shows, TV, and more. Politics & Opinion gives every Barnard student a platform to say what they want, and New York City Living helps us to better understand and better enjoy the Big Apple we call home. Features is the place for everything under the sun, from "In Her Words" personal essays, to our "Love, Actually" romance column, to longer pieces on networking culture, technology, and the best things about Barnard.
Here at The Bulletin, we know that we're lucky to go to a school with such talented writers, artists, and designers—and we harness their talents to produce an informative and entertaining magazine every month.
