About Us

Welcome to the Amherst College literary magazine! The Indicator aims to reflect the varied experiences of all students. From academic papers to short stories and poetry, artwork to campus news interviews, this magazine is for anyone who has something to say.

Originally founded in 1848, The Indicator was resurrected in the spring of 1996 after a 154-year hiatus. The Indicator’s primary mission is to provide a medium for discussion of local, national, and international issues within the college community.

The Indicator welcomes contributions in the form of letters to the editor, articles, or illustrations. Please send any questions, comments, or submissions to: the amherstindicatoreditor@gmail.com
