Argus is NSU’s award winning art and literary magazine. Each year, a staff of students produces a magazine showcasing the best of NSU students’ art and creative writing. Among the awards Argus has captured are national recognitions from the Associated Collegiate Press ‘Best of Show – Literary Magazines’ competition and a Best of the South award for college magazines from the Southeastern Journalism Conference. Writers who have contributed to Argus during their student days in Natchitoches include screenwriter Juliet Snowden (Knowing, Bogeyman) and novelist Clarence Nero (Too Much of a Good Thing Ain’t Bad, Three Sides to Every Story).

The Argus staff works with qualified judges to host a contest for pieces submitted for consideration in the magazine.
