Magazine Production Spring 2020: Who We Are

PULSE Magazine is entirely produced by journalists at Hofstra University’s Lawrence Herbert School of Communication.

This issue of PULSE Magazine is about everything water. How it impacts our environment, how humans can harm it, pollution, water safety, and more!


Letter From The Editor-In-Chief:

Meghan Gioia

Dear Readers,

This Spring 2020 issue of Pulse Magazine has been an absolute honor to be a part of. It is no easy task to create a publication of this length from scratch, especially from our homes during the Coronavirus pandemic.  

The theme of this issue, Water, is one that I hold very close to my heart. As a native Long Islander, I am truly passionate about these local stories. From water pollution and safety, to coastal erosion and climate change initiatives, this issue informs of the very real problems that will inevitably lead to the destruction of our beautiful home as well as the many efforts we can make to combat such problems. 

I proudly present to you from Hofstra University’s Lawrence Herbert School of Communication, the Spring 2020 issue of Pulse Magazine: Water. 

Thank you,

Meghan Gioia
