Welcome to the Happenstance Archive

Created by Nease students and published by Nease students, Happenstance is not just an art and literary magazine but a connector of our diverse community. The magazine, since 2001, has nurtured a risk-free environment, a special place where pen or paintbrush connect with paper in the most harmonious way, where any student can recreate the greatest joys or pitfalls of life. In this paper, authenticity and individuality are not only present, they thrive. Happenstance welcomes you with open arms with one-of-a-kind poetry, prose, and art.
