Counterpoint’s Mission

Counterpoint 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 become more offbeat and somewhat irreverent, but we remain dedicated to promoting individual thought, casual popular scholarship, education, and campus dialogue. We focus on highlighting perspectives that mainstream and popular media often marginalize or fail to bring to the forefront. Counterpoint aims to be a safe space for people of all backgrounds and meet the needs of our readers wherever possible, while also upholding our mission to publish pieces that deal with important and often challenging topics.
