We received 253 submissions, which is an impressive testament to how much creative talent we have at GMU. Our Fall 2017 issue will be out in the spring semester. Please tell your friends about Volition, and submit again next year if you don’t make it into this issue! In the meantime, look for the magazine stands around campus to find our previous issues, plus other GMU student publications.
