Nonsense For Adults — Issue 167 — May 2017
The Fake News Issue — Issue 166 — March 2017
Fake News is a thing everyone started talking about in late 2016/early 2017, and, honestly, Nonsense has always been Fake News in the truest sense, so we decided to do an issue devoted to it. We're also big fans of school newspaper The Hofstra Chronicle, so what better way to show that than to print an issue that closely matches their design!

The "PC" Issue – Issue 163 – 2016
Our headwriter, Matt, came to us with this idea and we initially were very hesitant. But as he developed the idea--and as our staff began to brainstorm articles--we started to see it more clearly. The result is a very strong issue, coming off the back of a very successful school year for Nonsense. (Right before releasing this we won "Best Media Organization of the Year")

The Hofstra Issue — Issue 160 — 2015
Nonsense's first print issue since 2012, The Hofstra Issue was born out of a general discontent and a desire to paint Hofstra as we perceive it: an insane place that seldom feels real. The printing of the issue created a few roadblocks for Nonsense, and faced criticism and attempted censorship by the administration. Nonetheless, the issue was seemingly well received by the student body, but it's not like we'd actually tell you if it were poorly received, so who are you to take our word for it? Read this piece of shit yourself!

The Green Issue — Issue 159 — 2015
Originally intended for publication in March 2015, the Green Issue sat dormant until September, and includes all the original content, plus some new contributions (including the layout by Nonsense all-star Gillian Pitzer) as well as an Editorial farewell by former Editor-in-Chief and superhero Ana Davis, who really put so much time and care into this club.

Fall Sampler — Issue 158.5 — 2015
A short and sweet pamphlet containing some things we never quite got around to putting out, including the cover which originated as a club joke in 2013. It's all pretty good actually, you should give it a spin. Local Bar Alone is an opus, the likes of which we may never see again.
The Fall Issue — Issue 158 — 2014
The "D" Issue — Issue 157 — 2014
The SGA Issue — Issue 156 — 2014
Basically, we lost our fucking office and the whole process was a shit show. It really was miserable and it felt like we were totally doomed, so we decided to do what we do best and totally roast the shit out of those fuckers. This issue is firmly responsible for resurrecting this club, but is also one of the most bitter pieces of writing you will ever read. In a twist of poetic irony, losing our office helped us to find our work ethic and our passion.

All the other stuff that we did is not yet digital, but we're working on getting some of it up. Additionally, you should know, that the rest of the content that this shitrag of a magazine has put out borders on totally insensitive and offensive, with a larger increase the farther back you go. But, hey, maybe one day we'll put it up.
If we do, you'll be able to find that here.
