Cambium at Feather River College nourishes intellectual and creative communities on our campus while allowing students to apply what they’ve learned. The journal also serves as a bridge with local communities, creating connections between the campus community and regional writers, artists, and other community members. Cambium is an opportunity for aspiring and established artists and writers in the community to share their art and writing.
