Counterpoint Magazine is the student-run monthly journal of campus life at Wellesley College. We publish original non-fiction articles on just about everything, from politics to the arts, campus life to personal essays. Since our founding in 1991, we have gradually become more offbeat and somewhat irreverent, but we remain dedicated to promoting individual thought, casual popular scholarship, and campus dialogue. We focus on highlighting key perspectives that mainstream and popular media often marginalize or fail to bring to the forefront.
