Student-Produced Magazine Distributed on Campus, at Local Businesses


GENESEO, N.Y. -- The fourth annual issue of LIVE magazine is being distributed to Livingston County businesses and the SUNY Geneseo campus.

First published in 2008, LIVE is free magazine produced by Geneseo students targeted towards their fellow students. Articles focus on events and activities available in Geneseo and surrounding towns. Students write and design the publication and student sales representatives sell advertising for the four-color publication. It offers students the opportunity to develop professional skills and increase their level of campus involvement.

The current issue features articles offering readers suggestions on spring and summer activities to take advantage of in Livingston County, dining spots in the area and transportation alternatives to the car to get around the Geneseo region.

The magazine is designed to revolutionize the way students experience the local community; to excite readers about the places, activities, and opportunities available in Livingston and Wyoming counties; and to encourage rapport between the Geneseo campus and the surrounding towns.

LIVE offers area businesses the opportunity to directly market to the student body at an affordable cost. The publication is available at the establishments of all advertisers, in the MacVittie College Union, residence halls, and at new student orientation.
