Several yellow pencils on diagonal and parallel to each other on whiteIt’s an exciting time at The Voice!  For 25 years The Voice has published a quality magazine for and by AU students.  This month, with the fresh look of its website, The Voice is drawing more attention and more readers.  As an AU student, you might be thinking, “How can I be a part of this?”

Get in to Win!  Before you do anything else, you’ll want to get in on The Voice‘s subscriber draw for an iPad Mini.  Entering is so easy you’ll want to stop reading this and enter right away.  There are two ways to enter (but you can only enter once).

If you haven’t already signed up for The Voice‘s weekly reminder e-mail, then sign up here:  Not only will you be entered in the draw, you’ll get an e-mail each Friday when the latest issue of The Voice is published online.  (You can unsubscribe anytime after November 30, but why would you want to?)

If you were already subscribing to The Voice‘s e-mail reminder before you knew they’d be splashing prizes around, you can still enter.  Just go to and give your feedback on the new website and you’ll be entered, too.

All entries received by November 30 have a chance to win an iPad Mini or one of 25 swag packages.
