The Coven: Magic, Power & Inclusivity

Alumna Alex West Steinman (BA '11, journalism) launched The Coven, a space for people who have been marginalized to create and collaborate. “The University is so big, so you have to make it smaller for yourself which means finding a community within a community,” says Steinman. “That’s what I’m doing at The Coven: creating space for community to be uncovered.”
