It was for the Mad Cow that the word "derecognize" was coined in 2001. In the Spring of that year, the magazine published a list of departmental pick-up lines that were of questionable taste. The staff worried that campus would not take kindly to this crude humor, and to some degree they were right. However, most concentrated on an article (written by the now-infamous 'Hans Oji') that satirized the then-new position of College Council MinCo Rep. For this, CC threatened to derecognize the whole organization. While the magazine continued the next year, it began publishing a disclaimer in the front of every issue. In addition, the Cow began seeking volunteers to test-read its articles. If you would like to test-read for the Mad Cow, please e-mail the editors' listserver at to volunteer.
The Mad Cow has gone through several editorial dynasties, beginning with the reign of David Ramos '99, who soon turned the reins over to [[Seth Brown ]] and Art Munson (both ’01). Their illustrious reign was followed by [[Josh Ain]], Rachelle Hassan, and Jenny McElroy (‘03s), who passed control to the ’04 triumvirate of Neil Anderson, Al Gordon, and Dan Bahls. Upon their graduation in Spring 2004, responsibility passed to [[Amanda R. Van Rhyn '06]] and [[Katherine L. Dieber '07]], who will soon add some names to their administration. Watch this space for exciting editorial developments!
The Mad Cow accepts submissions from the entire campus: articles, illustrations, funny quotes from professors, and anything else original and funny. Submissions should be e-mailed to for consideration. Any and all students are welcome to join the Mad Cow staff and help in writing and formatting of the final publication.
