Life on Campus

Student Media

The Mass Media

Students keep in touch with campus life by reading the student newspaper, The Mass Media.


Student writers and photographers have an opportunity to contribute to The Beacon, a publication released each fall for UMass Boston graduating seniors.

The Watermark

The annual spring literary journal, The Watermark, features the best work produced by student artists and writers.


LUX is a bi-annual publication that is released once during the fall semester and again in the spring. We seek to publish student and faculty writing that sheds light on research, achievements, and opportunities throughout the UMass Boston community.

The Marble Collection

The Marble Collection (TMC) publishes the Massachusetts High School Magazine of the Arts, the only statewide print and online magazine of the arts featuring jury-selected artwork, photography, spoken word, poetry, and writing by students in grades 8 to 12.
