…the Heuristic Squelch

Mission Statement: To champion the good, to eradicate evil, to occasionally make you half-heartedly chuckle right before Psych 2.

Biography: The Heuristic Squelch is UC Berkeley’s only intentionally funny publication. The magazine was founded in 1991, only a few years after the demise of  The Pelican (est. 1903), which fell apart “sometime in the eighties”.  We publish five to six issues every academic year. We mostly distribute by passing out magazines (for free!) on lower Sproul, though a paid subscription service is also available for alumni and parents who live outside of Berkeley.

Accomplishments: We have no accomplishments to list other than that we managed to spend our time making a magazine rather than drinking and weeping (an ever-present temptation for those of our kind.)
