A New Generation, But the Same Goals

The first issue of NEWSWEEK
ON CAMPUS appeared in the
fall of 1982, the fall that this
year's college freshmen were
entering the eighth grade. We
set for ourselves two guide-
lines: first, to produce for col-
lege students a magazine just
like NEWSWEEK except that it
would focus on the special in-
terests of students; second, to
take students seriously.
Magazines for students exist-

ed before NEWSWEEK ON CAM-
Pus, and a lot of them have been
founded since. But we are
pleased to observe that we seem
to be the model. Earlier this
year, The Wall Street Journal
said: "NEWSWEEK ON CAMPUS
gave the college magazine mar-
ket legitimacy." We believe
this is true because we are the
only publication for students
that is written, edited and de-
signed by the professional staff

of a major national magazine;
much of our reporting comes
from campus correspondents
who are among the nation's
best student journalists.
We welcome your comments
and suggestions. We also wel-
come your MY TURN contribu-
tions; a MY TURN will appear in
every issue, always written by a
student. We look forward, as we
are sure you do, to the coming
academic year.
