About the Magazine

Seeing tremendous success in its first year, the Ubyssey Magazine has been introduced as an annual edition. Available to students once a year, this periodical format is an excellent way for you to reach a wider spectrum of readers. This year, the magazine aims to build on last year’s popular theme of Diversity, capturing and investigating the theme of How We Live by exploring topics such as LGBTQ rights, affordability & mental health.
