About Us

“Making Waves, Staying Current”

The Current is East Lansing’s only full-color arts-and-culture magazine. Developed for and by Michigan State University students, our bimonthly publications and weekly online exclusives amplify our voices and experiences.


The Current is a student-run news outlet that operates on an experiential learning model to hone the crafts of journalism and publication/project management. Our topics and corresponding social media campaigns represent the values and interests of our staff and readers. We publish with a unique and authentic voice to exemplify quality journalism for our readers.


We strive to be an exceptional experiential learning environment for students where they can perfect their digital publishing portfolio.
