Jump to: Contents | Themed Issues  |  Staff & Columnists

From 2007 - 2012, the magazine now known as BROAD was entitled Digest magazine. Throughout the years, this publication has evolved and grown, under the guidance of new student leadership teams. In Fall of 2012, the magazine saw its biggest changes as it transitioned from Digest magazine to BROAD Magazine, with a new design and many new elements. While significant changes have been made, BROAD Magazine is built upon the rich history of Digest magazine, as it was originally conceived, and continues many of its traditions, including some of the original columns and sections.

Here, you will find an archive of staff members, columns, sections, and special themed issues from this publication during its life as Digest magazine. Complete issues of Digest magazine can still be found on our Complete Issues page.
