Lion’s Eye Literary Magazine 

Lion’s Eye is The College of New Jersey’s student-run literary magazine with the purpose to publish one issue per semester showcasing student artwork, photography, poetry, and prose. Meetings are every Wednesday at 4:00 P.M. in Bliss. Any student with an interest in reviewing art/literature is encouraged to attend, and anyone can become a member simply by showing up to meetings. All members have the opportunity to influence the direction of the magazine by sharing their opinions and ideas and voting on whether submitted works should be included in the semester’s issue.

Created by a group of students at The College of New Jersey in the spring of 1996, unbound is an online magazine. At unbound, new views, forms and beliefs are explored and examined through articles in one of six categories: features, business and government, health, lifestyles, opinions and arts and leisure. The students, who were members of professor Kim Pearson’s magazine writing class and Elizabeth Mackie’s graphic design class, founded unbound on the belief that self-empowerment and self-liberation can be achieved through one’s own actions and involvement. Since then, unbound has evolved into an ongoing project that is maintained by students and volunteers with faculty direction and support. Yet unbound remains dedicated to the original goal.
