History

The student press has been active at Daytona State College since the 1960s. The literary magazine was originally called Sporran. It eventually became Peonies Pen. After an 8 year lapse, Dr. Muriel Fuqua, as faculty advisor for the Literary Society from 1997-1999, revived the literary magazine, then called Reflections. They published four issues of the magazine and won both years in the state competitions. During that time, the Literary Society also started a library for a local youth community center, the Rose Marie Bryon Children’s Center, and collected more than 1,000 books for the center. After Dr. Fuqua’s tenure, Professor Elena Jarvis oversaw the publication of the magazine for many years. The magazine later assumed the name Ole` until about six years ago, when the students agreed on Aeolus.
