See new on-line articles that appear nowhere else, not even in Student Leader's print edition. Student Leader publishes two editions each year, Fall (October) and Spring (March). Each 48-page issue features 24 pages of articles, which means that many outstanding articles don't make it into the printed magazine. The best of these original articles are now available here.

Student Leader also welcomes submissions from our readers that can be used in this special section of our web site. Please contact Associate Editor Anna Campitelli at (352) 373-6907 or send e-mail to anna.campitelli@studentleader.com if you want to submit an article or idea.
