Archarios, CCU’s student-run art and literature magazine, is celebrating its 25th anniversary in Spring 2016. Since its founding in 1990, the publication has won more than 80 national awards, including Best of Show in 2015 from Associated Collegiate Press/College Media Advisors.
Visual arts professor Paul Olsen, the faculty adviser of Archarios since its first issue, is stepping down after this year. During his long tenure, he has served as guide and counselor to dozens of student designers and editors. “I will miss it,” he admits. “It’s been great being a part of a vehicle that gives students confidence and something to be proud of. They get to say that their work has been in an award-winning magazine against schools like University of South Carolina and University of South California.” The next issue will be distributed on CINO Day, April 22, 2016.
