History

Artwork From the NAR, Volume 1, Issue 1[3]

NAR was created in May of 1989, and first published in July of 1989. It first began as a twice quarterly magazine that focused on covering current events in a more significant way. It was funded by the Board of Student Publications through Dean Edwin P. Kohler. The first issue featured articles about current world, national, and campus events. The article "A Tale of Seven Dismissals" by Valerie Lynn Stickles explains how budget cuts lead to the dismissal of seven Georgia Tech employees.[4] The article "I Won't Be Afraid of Anything: Reflections on Tiananmen" is an interview of a Chinese graduate student at Georgia Tech reflecting upon the Beijing massacre. [5]The "Now Featuring" column by Larry Sampler reports on the positive and negative aspects of the faculty at Georgia Tech. Poetry such as "My English Teacher Rode a Motorcycle" and "Immortality" were also featured in the first issue of the NAR.[6] Additional short stories, art, and opinions were included. Anyone that contributed to the magazine was deemed an editor. [7]

The NAR continued to have this kind of format and content for a few years. In the late 90s, the NAR became digital, and published its issues via the internet. The current NAR has transitioned back to the original format of a printed magazine.
