Long ago, in ancient times, Aeolus (pronounced EE-oh-luss) was known as Keeper of the Winds and sometimes mentioned as a son of Poseidon, who was the Lord of the Oceans. Greek mythology suggests that Aeolus ruled the birds of the air. It is our hope that Aeolus is a tool to our students; the proverbial wind beneath their wings that encourages them to launch into skies, soaring to heights they never imagined possible.

Aeolus Literary Magazine invites our readers to explore the ideas, concepts and artistic creations submitted by our very own students. Aeolus proudly establishes an expansive connection to our readers and among the submitters. Within Aeolus, all is one and one is all. We are individuals with our own creative expression brought together through a language all the world speaks-‘Art’. We invite our readers to compare and contrast, to view, understand, imagine, and relate. 

Aeolus is first and foremost a student publication. The students who take the initiative to serve on the Aeolus staff are the ones who make the arrangements and decisions for the magazine. Currently the staff advisor for the magazine is Dr. Harun Karim Thomas. Dr. Thomas serves as a professional educator who can explain, demonstrate, commend, critique and lead students to understand their role as magazine editors.
