Love the new look of the magazine; very fresh and modern looking!
Love it, especially the info on Pasaquan.
I am a CSU Alumni from the class of 2005. I hold a BFA and now work as the editor of the Ledger-Enquirer's monthly arts and entertainment publication called the Big ToDo. I just wanted to say how impressed I am by this new format of the alumni magazine and website. They are both wonderful! Congratulations to all involved. Thank you for your excellent work. I am proud to be a graduate of CSU and love seeing all of the progress being made in so many areas. Keep up the great work.
As the editor of the alumni magazine, the goal was to create a modern print-to-digital publication that continued to strengthen our connection to CSU alumni. Digital media is transforming constantly, so we needed to give our traditional magazine a 21st-century, responsive facelift. Now, alumni can interact with original content in new, creative ways.
I am excited about the new magazine's name, look and feel. We're trying hard to communicate the excitement, growth, energy and success we are seeing at Columbus State University. I think the new magazine better reflects that "buzz" that many of us see on campus.
Columbus State University's social networks are expanding daily to provide the perfect medium for students, alumni, faculty, staff and supporters of Cougar Nation to connect, or reconnect, in meaningful ways. By adding social elements to the alumni magazine, we now have a print and digital publication that will transform your relationship from “former classmate” to "friend."
