The following Project Highlight was originally created as part of a list of DH@MSU projects on this website.

The Current
Led by Kate Birdsall

The Current is a unique publication that allows students to participate in every aspect of creating a printed magazine, from writing to editing and design. By targeting one of the biggest demographics in the country, Gen Z, students learn how to market and aim a publication toward a specific audience as well as creating unique pieces for their portfolios. To complement the print edition, The Current’s website allows students to expand their writing beyond the East Lansing audience and gain experience writing for a national audience of their peers.
