Now in its thirty-first edition and continuing a tradition that began forty-nine years ago with the first campus literary magazine Convivio, the journal Red Weather gets its name from the poem "Disillusionment of Ten O'Clock" by Wallace Stevens, wherein the poet writes,

The staff for this year's Red Weather includes managing editor and the book's interior designer Ryan Christiansen, editors Ron Frannea, Jan Hough, Dustin Mohagen, Justin Montgomery, John Powers, Michael Resch, Emily Silverman, Tyler Sorensen, Shane Thielges, and Jonah Volheim, the book's cover designer Mychal Waldorf, and faculty advisor Dr. Thom Tammaro.
