The Banner regularly publishes a newspaper that reports on issues important to the CSI and the CUNY community, and the latest updates on breaking stories that directly affect student life. Other areas of student interest covered include CSI sports, arts, and personalities.

Brainbow magazine covers the latest and most popular trends in self-improvement, in addition to other topics focusing on health, healing and improvement in mind. 
The Catalyst Magazine
The Catalyst Magazine is a student magazine featuring informative articles about research, advancement and theory in subjects such as biology, chemistry, psychology, physics, mathematics, history, ethics, philosophy, anthropology, language--you name it! 
Get Down to Business
Get Down to Business magazine strives to provide students with the opportunity to exercise their writing skills in order to inform the student body of trends, ideas, and the like with regard to business. 
QUEER-Zine magazine will provide an outlet for students to write about  LGBTQ issues, empower, promote awareness, and encourage involvement within the LGBTQ campus community.
