Hi, what are you looking for?


Our Mission

Tusk is the annual Lifestyle magazine of California State University, Fullerton, one of the nation’s largest and most diverse institutions of higher education.

Tusk champions inclusion by amplifying silenced voices, strengthening solidarity, and telling stories that matter to our different communities through deliberate and inclusive journalism.

Our dedicated team of editors, writers, and designers took a radical approach to this year’s edition with the intent to arouse empowerment and subvert the status quo.

In shaking shit up, we hope to uplift our communities and fight for freedom collectively.

Fists up! Tusks up!
