RISE is the magazine companion and a colorful display of what The Underground strives to be – a space for inspiration, creation and advocacy among students at Penn State.
We’ve called the magazine RISE after American writer Maya Angelou’s famous poem Still I Rise, a declaration of triumph over adversity.
This poem serves as a reminder of our commitment to social justice and community. The only way to overcome hate, oppression and injustice is if we rise – together, unified and with strength.
The magazine features some of our favorite articles and events from our inaugural year, as well are pictures and illustrations from our favorite events.
