Susurrus: n. a soft whispering or rustling sound; a murmur.  

Susurrus, the literary journal at City College, produces an annual book of exemplary student writing, art, poetry and photography. Founded in 1994, Susurrus has been named the best community college literary journal in the nation twice by Community College Humanities Association.

After being cancelled  in the fall 2018 semester due to low enrollment, Susurrus is seeking students to enroll as staff writers as the spring 2019 semester approaches.

Marci Selva, Susurrus literary journal adviser, wrote a compelling note on the Susurrus Facebook page encouraging students to enroll in the City College literary journal:
