Communicating with you

Essex Effect, our award-winning alumni magazine

We gave our annual magazine a new look in 2016, with features on an LGBT+ pioneer, a comedy legend, feminist awakenings, 1980s student politics, the power of coral reef research, and much more. Not only that, but we recently won a CASE Advance Circle of Silver Award in the Magazine Publishing Improvement Category!

Each year, we send the magazine to over 50,000 alumni worldwide - and many more read it online. Update your contact details to get your copy. 

You can still read back issues online too:

You will need Adobe Reader to view these magazines.
