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 quarterly publications and weekly online exclusives amplify our voices and experiences.

Mission

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.

Vision

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