Eagle's Nest Magazine

On October 21, 2011, the Arts Society of Eastern Students released the debut issue of its literary and arts magazine. The editorial board asked all Eastern students to participate in a naming contest, and from numerous entries, chose the name suggested by Patti Ritter.

The Arts Society received many submissions for the first volume and believed that the quality of all submissions merited publication. However, due to limited space in that first volume, the Arts Society could not publish all of the artistic work submitted. To recognize the creative accomplishments of all who submitted, the editorial board decided to include this additional student artwork in a web-only collection called "Aerie Branches".
