The Bard aims to bring the light to unspoken but important issues in our community. We cover various topics ranging from diversity to sexual harassment. These are difficult, intimidating, sensitive topics rarely discussed in the classroom, but are familiar to us students basking under picturesque oaks and California sunshine.

Why are we called the Bard?
In medieval times, a bard was a traveling poet, someone who brought news and culture to the community. The playwright William Shakespeare was called “The Bard,” and although we could never hope to achieve that kind of immortality, as an arts and lifestyle publication, Shakespeare is the kind of cultural icon we aspire to emulate.
