For the past four years, the publication has served as a channel of visibility for the college by celebrating the work of CAM students, faculty, staff, and alums. In addition to showcasing the college's achievements, productions, and contributions to the community, the state, and beyond, CAM Magazine is an invaluable tool for promoting CAM's mission and vision and elevating its reputation as a leading educational institution.

Each issue is curated and designed by the CAM Marketing & Communications Team and also includes articles by CAM’s contributing writer and editor, Julia May.

It's a testament to the passion and creativity of our college. CAM Magazine would not be possible without the creative, active, and meaningful CAM community.”
