About jerk

Jerk magazine is a student-run monthly publication at Syracuse University. In our efforts to “jerk” people out of their apathy, we have created a distinctive voice that is passionate and uncompromising, coupled with the visually arresting work of student artists.

We have identified four goals for our magazine:

1. Foster the local music and arts scene. 2. Address larger themes and issues that affect SU students. 3. Address local, state, national, and world politics and issues that breed controversy and keep our reader informed of them. 4. Provide a platform for well-formed opinion

Disclaimer Through its content, Jerk is dedicated to enhancing insight through communication by providing an informal platform for the freedom of expression. The writing contained within this publication and on our website, www.jerkmagazine.net, expresses the opinions of the individual writers. The ideas presented in this publication do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the Jerk Editorial Board.
