Each year students edit and publish the Forum, a journal of translations of passages from Greek and Roman literature, short articles, illustrations, and sundry other items (movie rooms, subjective discussions) connected to the study and appreciation of the classical world. Some students even choose to translate Greek or Roman poetry into poetry in another language (these languages have included French and Russian as well as from Greek to Latin or Latin to Greek). The journal allows a window into the kind of interests that the study of the Classics generates.
Balancing serious reporting with robust op-ed and humor sections, The Collegiate Journal is an outlet for Upper School students to share their experiences with different aspects of the world, the City, and Collegiate student life. Each issue is the product of love and hard work on the part of the staff and the faculty advisors. There is excitement surrounding the publication of each new edition, with students crowding around piles of papers in the lobby, in the library, and other communal spaces, to grab their fresh copy. In each Journal issue, students know they will find thoughtful reporting on topics that matter to them; savvy sports coverage; varied perspectives from their peers on school-wide issues; student artwork and poetry; crossword puzzles; and community news. The Journal helps to create a lasting record of Collegiate through the centuries; one that will help future generations of Dutchmen to appreciate their own history. In operation since 1932, The Journal has a long tradition of excellence that students strive to continue.
Modern Language Publications
Each year, Upper School students publish opinion pieces, film and book reviews along with works of creative writing in the school magazines Charabia (French) and Voces (Spanish). Student editors are responsible for soliciting submissions from their peers, curating the content and for the overall design of the journals.
Upper School Literary Magazine
Prufrock is the Collegiate Upper School literary magazine. Published annually, Prufrock includes fiction, literary nonfiction, and poetry written by students in grades 9-12. The magazine also publishes artwork including photography, paintings, and drawings.
First published in 1906, The Dutchman is Collegiate’s yearbook and longest running student publication. Composed and edited by a staff of upperclassmen, The Dutchman memorializes each passing year of Collegiate’s storied history. With sections dedicated to each grade and major activity in the school, The Dutchman embodies Collegiate’s K-12 spirit, while also reflecting the unique style of its graduating seniors.
