Zest Magazine, Syracuse University’s first travel publication
Capstone Prize Winner
Won Capstone Funding
Zest Magazine is Syracuse University’s first travel publication dedicated to bursting the bubble of campus life and highlighting student adventures far beyond the Hill. It focuses on servicing students’ curiosity about the world while inspiring a sense of wanderlust in readers. Zest strives to get all students interested in travel, regardless of gender, socioeconomic, racial, and ethnic identity. Initially, Zest appeared in the spring semester of 2015 as an interactive tablet publication. It transitioned over to a print publication in the spring semester of 2016.
“Zest Magazine: An Editorial, Managerial, & Exploration of SU's Premier Travel Publication” sets out not only to create boundary-breaking, breathtaking content, but also intends to explore the managerial side of creating and ensuring the continued success of an on-campus student publication. It provides insight into the creation, cultivation, and leadership of all aspects of a student publication — including direction of the editorial, design, photography, illustration, and public relations portions of the publication.
