To me, the Nass is great because it manages to be a serious publication without taking itself too seriously. I really feel like there are very few other outlets that write about important things without making it into chore. I think the Nass is really one of a kind because it knows how to have a good time while also being steadfast in its pursuit of quality writing. At a school where academic writing often feels laborious and tedious, this kind of haven for on-purpose, voluntary “writing for the sake of writing” is indispensable. It’s all about the positive side of writing, with positive energy and real commitment, balancing out the grueling sort of mathematical writing that they teach you in Writing Seminar.
