Every year a group of dedicated students enrolled in The University of New Mexico Honors College publish a magazine filled with collected works from around the western region of the U.S.

It's called, "Scribendi."

Scribendi means "those which must be written." Originally titled "UNM Honors Review," the magazine changed its name to "Scribendi" in 1995 to reflect the fact that it had grown from a UNM publication into a regional publication for Honors students.

"Scribendi" is a nonprofit, annual print publication that publishes creative work from undergraduate Honors students from more than 200 institutions in the Western Regional Honors Council. It's primarily produced by Honors students at UNM—however, in 2016-2017 the magazine introduced its first exchange student, and two more for the 2017-2018 school year.

The magazine solicits work in a number of different categories such as poetry, creative nonfiction, short fiction, foreign language, visual art, photography and open media.

Since 2018, "Scribendi" has been part of the Adobe Ambassador program at UNM.

The program is run by Adobe, which partners with student groups at colleges across the U.S. Its goal is to increase awareness and use of Adobe software.

Through this program, "Scribendi" staff help UNM students become more familiar with Adobe programs. In 2019, UNM became an Adobe Creative Campus, meaning all full time UNM students, staff and faculty have access to the Adobe Creative Suite using their UNM login information.

"So far this has been an enriching experience for "Scribendi" editors, staff and the students who have joined us," staff said. "There will be more to come, so keep your eye out if you’re interested in learning more about Adobe software and how to use different programs."

In order to spread the word about the program, and help students take full advantage of it, Adobe Ambassadors must accomplish specific responsibilities. The responsibilities include three workshops throughout the academic year, social media outreach, contact with 10 new student groups each semester and a handful of tabling events each semester.
