Venture magazine is produced twice a year by journalism majors at MHCC and is an effort to provide in-depth feature and investigative coverage of the college community and beyond. The magazine offers students an opportunity to write longer, more complex articles than space typically allows in the student newspaper, and gives the students a chance to become familiar with modern magazine design. Venture strives to include a broad spectrum of articles regarding the college community, presented in a fair and balanced manner, and works toward the goal of being informative, timely, lively, relevant, compelling and thought provoking. In addition, students often cover issues of a regional, state or national nature that the readership may find to be of interest.
Venture has been published at MHCC since 1981. Quarterly tuition waivers are provided for the leadership of the magazine. The publication is entirely produced by students and the staff generally numbers 10 to 14 each year. These students are usually journalism majors and come from the same group that produces The Advocate, MHCC's weekly newspaper.
