Behind-the-scenes of Alice
The Media Planning Board elected Jennafer Bowman to serve as Alice Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief for the 2022-2023 academic year. Bowman will represent Alice at the Spring National College Media Convention from March 9-12 in New York City.
Bowman plans to focus on effective communication internally and externally along with continuing to give all college women a platform for their opinions moving forward.
“Voicing all opinions on our platform in all of our departments is extremely important to me,” Bowman said. “Alice is your big sister through the entire college process so it’s imperative that in all aspects of our magazine college women see themselves in everything we do.”
Bowman, a junior majoring in public relations and minoring in creative writing, has served on the Alice staff since 2019. As a contributor, Bowman has been published over ten times in our Lifestyle and Fashion sections. She has covered a variety of topics from mothers in college to plus-size thrifting. During her time as a contributor, Bowman created over 40 graphics for Alice’s social media.
During the 2020-2021 academic year, Bowman served as Alice’s Lifestyle Editor. Her team of over 40 contributors covered dating in quarantine, birth control methods, toxic TikTok trends and more.
Currently, Bowman serves as the managing editor for the 2021-2022 academic year. In this position, she oversees the writing department and frequently coordinates with our digital team to create seamless content across our platforms.
“Jen is an enthusiastic worker and always brings exciting, new ideas to the table,” said Lindsey Wilkinson, current Editor-in-Chief of Alice, “I cannot wait to see all that she and her team will accomplish.”
Bowman plans to start interviewing for next year’s positions in April and will take over as Editor-in-Chief upon Wilkinson’s graduation in May. The first Alice issue of her tenure is set to release in the fall of 2022.
