First off, what is The Voice Magazine you ask? The Voice is the official student publication of Athabasca University, funded by the AU Students’ Union. It is chalk full of news, views, interviews, reviews, and more, written BY AU students, FOR AU students. And it just got a makeover!
Last year, AUSU started a joint Voice/AUSU committee to look at what improvements would help bring The Voice Magazine forward into the future with more relevance and appeal for AU students. It has been a long road, but we are pleased to announce the new Voice site is now up and running with a new look, new logo, and a better layout.
