Who We Are

Juiced is a magazine created and staffed by Syracuse University freshmen. We are a new publication, founded in September 2013. What started as an idea has grown to a staff of 40, as well as 50 published articles and 11,000 page views within a month of juicedmag.org's launch. Juiced does what other publications don't: it focuses on a specific time of our lives we only experience once-- our freshman year of college. Every article has a freshman spin to it, whether we are interviewing our peers on their accomplishments, asking them to share their most embarrassing moments, or interviewing an alum on their reflections of freshman year. Juiced provides freshmen the opportunity not only to become published writers, but also to be involved in the process of running a magazine. 

Why Print?

It's a question worth asking: why have a print magazine when you can have an online publication?

Print magazines at Syracuse University are a big deal. There are 10 print magazines at Syracuse, each of them providing content to niche consumers. Juiced fills a previously ignored void; the ups and downs of freshmen year at Syracuse University. Becoming a print magazine means that as freshmen, we are capable of accomplishing more than just writing an article. We are capable of creating a highly produced, polished print magazine, a product that will go beyond a website. We have already begun work on our print publication. We have the creative team, the writers, and the passion. Now all we need is the funding. 

That's where you come in.

Your Support

Our goal is $3950 which will allow us to publish two print magazines next semester, allowing for the cost of rewards and Kickstarter's cut.

Cost Breakdown:

$2445.98 goes to publishing our two print magazines. Each magazine will be 5.5x8.5 inches, 28 pages, full color, and gloss coated. 

$550 will go towards producing and sending our rewards to our awesome backers. 

$395 will go to Kickstarter, as they are promised 10% of successfully funded projects.

$460 funds the publicity of Juiced, ranging from fliers, advertisements, and posters, to our launch party.

 $100-? Any extra funding we receive will pay for hosting of our website and creating a fund for future print magazines (in addition to school funding), insuring Juiced will have the best possible magazine in years to come.

Our Legacy

Juiced will go beyond our freshman year. We are currently applying to become a Recognized Student Organization, which will provide the magazine with funding in coming years. We need your support in order to prove that freshmen are capable of running and launching a magazine, and that we deserve to be funded by the University in the future.

Beyond the pages of Juiced, our legacy is simple. Freshmen have a voice. We aren't rushing through our first year of college in order to become upperclassmen. Our time is now, and it's time for that to be recognized. 

Risks and challenges

The Juiced staff will work hard to have our print magazine finished by January 2014. Although the publishing company states shipping takes 2-3 weeks, there is a potential for delays, which could push our launch further into February.
