Stephens Life

Our award-winning student-run magazine  

Stephens Life is produced by Stephens students as part of a practicum class available through the School of Design. However, students from any major can enroll. The practicum encourages a real-world publishing environment where students take on the roles of creative director, art director, graphic designer, photographer or writer, and work together to produce a high quality magazine publication. Stephens Life underwent a rebranding process in 2016 led by students and reflective of a more modern, photo-centric approach to journalism. Students on the magazine staff get hands-on experience from pitching articles to the final production and every step in-between.
