Faculty Adviser

Lauri Ramey E & T A613 (email)

Statement magazine is one of the oldest student-run campus literary magazines in the country. Many past student contributors and staff or faculty advisors have become nationally recognized writers and artists: Jim Krusoe, Sesshu Foster, Carolyn See, Ai, Helena Maria Viramontes, Henri Coulette, John Weston, Jervey Tervalon, Aleida Rodriguez, Frank Romero, Michael Shepler, Dennis Etchison, and Dennis Bartel, among many others.

Statement magazine has twice had the honor of placing in or winning the AWP (Association of Writers and Writing Programs) annual competition for member colleges' student literary magazines, competing with a couple hundred universities and colleges. In 1997, under advisors Mary Bucci Bush and Buddy Roberts, Statement was named a finalist in the content division. In 2007, under advisor Lauri Ramey, the magazine won the competition, enjoying a $500 cash prize and accolades in The Chronicle, AWP's nationally distributed journal.
