Meet the staff.

Let us introduce Lou.

Before the sunglasses, before the collaboration with Warhol, before his band The Velvet Underground released “And Nico,” which some call the most influential album in rock history, Lou Reed was simply Luis Reed, an English major at Syracuse University. So it is only fitting that an arts-focused magazine created at his alma mater might take his name and his curiosities as inspiration, which is exactly what this is. Lou magazine seeks to explore the artful and the interesting in Syracuse with a focus on the sights, solids, sounds, and lit (as in literature). Below, you’ll find the staff. They, along with professors Melissa Chessher, Seth Gitner, and Jeff Passetti, who provided editorial, technical, and artistic leadership, created this digital publication.
