About Chimes

Chimes is the Art and Literary Magazine on Saint Mary's Campus. The Magazine features creative works by Saint Mary's students, consisting of everything from poetry to photography to prose to installation art.

Chimes Magazine is as deeply rooted in tradition and history as the College itself. The first issue of Chimes came out in September of 1892. At that time, it was a monthly publication that focused not only on writing and poetry, but also provided Saint Mary's students with College news and information. Chime's predecessor was the Rosa Mystica, a publication that featured both stories and poetry, which began in 1859.

Today, Chimes has evolved from its origination as a literary publication to include artistic works. Not only that, but in the last few years, the magazine has gone completely digital and continues to mold itself to the ever-changing society in which the tradition of Saint Mary's College is so deeply rooted.

We hope that you enjoy this issue of Chimes, which marks another success in the creative achievements of the students of Saint Mary's College, whose voices will be ringing for years to come.
