Excerpt from Argus, 2002-2003
The 2002-2003 Argus Staff invites you to experience the sheer vastness of literature and art at Northwestern with the 27'h edition we feel is appropriately titled symmetry.
Unfortunately, we were not able to print every submission received. Out of the 200' something submissions, we hope symmetry is a diverse showcase of this year's creativity.
Throughout the layout process, we kept a few things in mind. One of those was balance. The pages inside are full of life, death, love, heartache, joy and most of all the amazing, overpowering zeal that literature offers.
We incorporated photography this year to help expound certain themes. Regardless of the format, art and language both convey ideas, and are both snapshots of reality. We feel that by coupling similar themes, the magazine's written word and printed image are congruent, and portray an accurate collage of the world we live in.
Not all of these snapshots are comfortable. Some are raw, some are depressing, and some are perhaps controversial. However, all demonstrate the awesome potential of communi' cation. It is for that reason we believe the freedoms granted to popular views are also extended to the ones that are not.
For 27 years, the Argus has been the primary soapbox for students to publish their views and artwork uninhibited, and we aim to uphold that tradition, as long as the submissions promote a civil discussion of ideas.
