The Jeff Celebrates a Full Year of Publication

The Jefferson Independent celebrated its first full year in publication yesterday, the same day as Founder’s Day.

As the only student-run conservative, libertarian, and independent publication at the University of Virginia, “the Jeff” is committed to preserving the “illimitable freedom of the human mind,” protecting and encouraging free speech, and following the truth “wherever it may lead.”

Among the Jeff’s tangible accomplishments: subscriptions now exceed 500, and it has been quoted in Breitbart News.
