The Stray Shot

The Stray Shot is our literary magazine, first published in March 1884. It was named for a regular column delineating the arbitrary, funny, off-the-mark events and utterances of school and classroom life (like the Civil War cannon shots which went astray). In the beginning it was a school newspaper, a literary journal, a town newspaper, an alumni magazine, and a yearbook and was published 10 months a year. It continued to be published four times a year as a literary magazine until 1955. It became the annual magazine it is currently in 1956.

Students can submit art, photography, poetry and fiction to the Stray Shot.
