Student Journals & Newspapers

SSA students operate numerous clubs and organizations including the Advocates' Forum, a student-run academic journal addressing cutting edge topics in the practice and administration of social work. SSA is one of only a handful of schools of social work to sponsor such a journal. The Chicago Maroon is the independent student newspaper of The University of Chicago since 1892.
