The Makio, Japanese for "Magic Mirror," is the official student yearbook of The Ohio State University. Originally produced by fraternities on campus, the Makio evolved into an outlet for commentaries by students about campus, faculty, and life in general. The Makio has included art work, essays, and poetry as well. As it became easier to include photographs in publications, the Makio also became the pictorial history of campus. The first Makio was published in 1880. It was not published in 1881, 1893, 1979, and from 1995-2000.
