The Marquette Journal is an entirely student-produced magazine, run by the Student Media department of Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Production of the Marquette Journal is advised by full-time faculty member Dr. Stephen Byers of the Journalism Department.


Published quarterly, the Journal highlights aspects of college student life not covered in the more hard news oriented Marquette Tribune newspaper. The focus of the magazine is on personal and special interest stories, and also has a strong emphasis on photography.


The Marquette Journal was first published in 1904, one of Marquette University's first student media outlets. During this time, one issue of the Journal was published per school year. In 1915, the Marquette Hilltop yearbook was first published, and the Journal transformed into a student literary magazine. The magazine was published for years in this format, but in the 1960s, the magazine began experimenting with publishing magazine feature articles along with the literary works of fiction that had previously dominated the Journal. In the decades that followed, the percentage of journalistic content versus the percentage of literary fiction changed from year to year, some years being almost completely literary and other years being almost completely feature writing. In the spring of 2006, the Journal staff began considering refocusing the Journal as a "student life magazine" entirely. The Journal replaced any literary content entirely with articles that related to Marquette's student body and the Milwaukee community as a whole. The Journal's format as a student life magazine became permanent in Fall of 2007, under the leadership of Editor-in-Chief Erin Sheehan.


The official staff positions for the Marquette Journal have changed over the years in order to suit the needs of the organization. However, every year, one Editor-in-Chief is selected by the Diederich College of Communication Student Media Board. As of 2009, the official Journal staff is composed of an Editor-in-Chief, Assistant Editor, Features Editor, Online Content Producer and Copy Chief. Also working on the Journal are a number of writers, copy editors, photographers and designers.

Current status[edit]
