NOVAsia is the pioneering student-run news magazine of Yonsei GSIS which accentuates regional perspectives but with a definite global twist. NOVAsia stems from nova, which is the Latin word for “new,” and Asia or “New Asia.” NOVAsia is not a traditional newsletter. Rather, it is a sounding board for contrasting and even contending voices even as it highlights the school’s achievements. The ultimate goal of NOVAsia is to make the magazine appeal not only to students, alumni, and future applicants but also to general readers worldwide. Over time, the editors of NOVAsia believe that the magazine will become synonymous with ground-breaking discourses on a range of issues pertinent to the future of Asia and the broader global village.
