The Beat is a print publication at Purchase College devoted mostly to long-form journalism and music. Through social media, we are already providing information about Purchase's broader arts community. In doing this, we hope to widen the audiences for all of our artists (which include faculty and alumni), while remaining an independent news organization.

For the first issue, the stories have been reported, photographs taken, and pages designed (by Robin Lynch's Community Design class). All we need now is the money to print. If we can raise $5,000 in 60 days, we can prove to the powers that be that The Beat is a going concern, and we can bring you this magazine on a regular basis.
