The Augustine Collective is a student-led movement of Christian journals on college campuses. While the Collective emphasizes the joint pursuit of faith and reason, each journal has its own distinct vision and aesthetic. Just as every college campus is unique, so every journal is different. We celebrate our unity and diversity in Jesus after the model of the early church – “Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ” (1 Corinthians 12:12).
