Outside of the classroom, students can explore writing as reporters for our school newspaper, The Guidon, and publish creative work in or serve as editors with The Chameleon Literary Journal. They can meet celebrated novelists, screenwriters, poets, and playwrights who visit campus through our NU Writers Series, and those interested in playwriting and screenwriting can see their work on stage with Pegasus Players and on-screen at the annual NU Film Festival.
