The purpose of a college literary-arts magazine is to foster intellectual growth, promote artistic creativity, and enhance student awareness and appreciation of the many modes of expression for feeling and thought. Feeling and thought are infinite and so are the possibilities for a magazine dedicated to this proposition. Such a magazine should have no set ideology or goal other than to present to the student body a wide gamut of well thought out, stimulating material as is possible. In order to fulfill these objectives, the magazine needs many contributors. Colleges have large numbers of talented individuals, and it is our hope that such talent should not be wasted, or forgotten, lying in drawers. To share our thought.s (and our scribblings) is one of the most satisfying feelings one can have and give, a,,d we sincerely hope that our readers realize the opportunity available to them through IDOL magazine, and utilize this opportunity to the fullest extent.
