About Reflector


At the beginning of the Fall 2014 semester, the Magnolia Publications team sat down in the campus Starbucks to conquer a problem that had been plaguing Student Media for years. “What is Reflector Magazine?” The Georgia Southern yearbook turned entertainment magazine, turned feature publication has had a lot of different missions in the past. With a loss of direction, it was time figure out what the students needed out of Reflector Magazine. They needed to start with a blank slate.

The staff bounced around different ideas of a hardcore feature magazine, a publication with a “yearbook vibe” and even a magazine focused solely on food. As the conversation began to run astray and the next round of coffees were being ordered, the incoming Reflector editor said, “It’s a lifestyle magazine.” When asked to elaborate, she explained that we’re all thrown into this college experience, and it’s nothing like we’ve ever dealt with before. She said that the culture we have on this campus isn’t just something that disappears in thin air after you spend your four (sometimes five) years here.

She finished with, “College isn’t just a phase, it’s a lifestyle.”

And in that moment Reflector Magazine was officially reborn.

Reflector Magazine is Georgia Southern University’s premier lifestyle magazine.
