Insight Magazine is the only student-run magazine at the University of Nevada, Reno. Formerly Nevada's yearbook for nearly 100 years, Insight Magazine has evolved into the second major publication circulating at the university. The first edition of Insight Magazine was founded on August 12, 2008 and was first published on September 16, 2008. It presents itself as a theme-based monthly magazine, providing photography, stories and graphics, in contrast to the weekly, newspaper-style of The Sagebrush. It is put out both in print and online. The online version provides both support for the published stories and independent content.
In its sophomore year, Insight Magazine received national attention from major college media organizations, such as the Associated College Press and the College Media Advisers. Insight placed fifth for headline presentation in Best of Collegiate Design 2009 by the College Media Advisers. At the 2009 ACP Conference in Austin, Tex., Insight placed fifth in Best of Show for an audio podcast.
