Synapse is a student-run digital magazine at UNC-Chapel Hill, founded to fill the void of thoughtful enterprise and investigative journalism in our community.

Every semester, a new issue of Synapse will be available online, iPad and iPhone.

By removing ourselves from the daily news cycle, we are able to focus solely on producing longform stories, interactive graphics and captivating photos and videos. And our digital-only format allows us to create a news experience that engages you, our reader, in the content.

Each issue will bring a mixture of hard-hitting news, data-driven analyses and riveting feature stories. We hope these pieces will prove thought-provoking, and ultimately foster conversation about the issues, people and events that matter to the UNC community.
