Seaver students have the opportunity to work on our nationally acclaimed weekly newspaper the Graphic, distributed both in print and online, and Currents Magazine. Both the newspaper and magazine are part of Pepperdine Graphic Media (PGM) and are supported by faculty advisers. The advisers bring decades of experience as daily newspaper and magazine editors, in addition to providing students with expertise in communication law, in-depth reporting, ethics and religious journalism.
Each semester students interested in magazine journalism publish a glossy publication featuring new and interesting stories about Pepperdine students and the community that surrounds Pepperdine. To view recently published features in the magazine, visit the Currents website.

If you are interested in any part of Student Publications, please come join us for Our Big Week (OBW). We start planning the year and put together the first issue of the Graphic. OBW typically takes place in August, the week before classes begin. Participants are allowed to move into their dorms early!
