Editorial

Backdrop began as a publication for students by students. Over the last decade, the magazine has expanded its coverage beyond campus affairs and evolved into an award-winning lifestyle magazine. Now, we proudly serve the Ohio University and Athens communities. With each issue, we strive to introduce readers to local business owners, creators, educators, activists and more who inspire even the temporary residents to be involved in the neighborhood. Through inviting language, bold imagery and captivating design, we diligently bring you the latest stories from our beloved Southeast Ohio town.
