Online: Autumn 1906 - 2014
Ariston, a Greek word meaning the best of the best, is the annual student art and literary publication of the University.
The first issue was published in 1906. It originally came out quarterly and featured student prose and poetry along with essays about campus life and events. Student art, guided by a faculty art advisor, was included beginning with the 1940-41 academic year. A student art editor was added later, in 1956.
Frequency varied from 1-4 issues per year. During the 1979-80 year Ariston adopted its current once-yearly format, with publication every spring.
