Sometimes you just have faith in something and you have to run with it,” said Sherri Miles, editor-in-chief of Suffolk’s award-winning Arts + Sciences Magazine. The publication’s 2010 issue, Imagine, has recently earned a seat as a finalist in the Media and News Industry (min) Editorial and Design Award Competition, a highly regarded competition acknowledging publications that excel in content and design.
Suffolk University is one of two schools in the competition, the other being Harvard. However, Suffolk is the one competing in its category, which suggests to Miles a great honor: that the quality of Suffolk’s Arts + Sciences magazine is on par with brand name magazines that possess more resources for production. However, Miles argues the content is far more important, and she believes whole-heartedly in what is within the book: “page after inspired page of learning taking place and people proud of their school.”
TheBestColleges.org names Suffolk Arts+Sciences magazine #3 for award-winning journalism in a list of 15 national university magazines, including publications from the University of Chicago, Flagler, Dartmouth, Penn State, and Columbia.
Suffolk University originally kept its alumni connected via newsletter before switching to a magazine format in 2007, immediately snapping up a Gold EXCEL Award and EXTRA! Award for its major paradigm shift, not only in format but in writing quality as well. Since then, it maintains a steady stream of lauds from local as well as national organizations, most notably from Folio: magazine, who just adores its articles and website.”
