The Spring and Summer 1999 issue was praised by faculty, staff and students as one of the best installments of the MFJ. The overall goal of the MFJ is to enlighten the student body about the existence and purpose of the MFJ. Their purpose is to provide a means of publication for undergraduates, to give them a chance to see their names in print and to further the development of young and aspiring artists at the University of Alabama.

Marr’s Field & Marr’s Spring, named after William Marrs, was the first parcel of land purchased as the site for The University of Alabama in 1828. The field was selected because, “The site is high and healthy, with several constant springs of pure freestone water, and a sufficiency of forest land.”
The MFJ was traditionally published annually in the Spring semester. In 2015 MFJ begins a new tradition as an online publication.
The MFJ offices are located in Rm 1024 of the Student Media Building at 414 Campus Drive East, which is across from the Rec Center outdoor pool.
