Editor, Campbell Today
In addition to this little thing I call a newsletter, I am editor of Campbell Magazine, the three-times-a-year publication that goes out to tens of thousands of alumni, students, parents, friends of Campbell and other institutions of higher learning.
The next magazine, due to hit your doorstep at any minute, puts the spotlight on Campbell’s award-winning ROTC program. A few issues back, we dedicated more than 70 pages to the new Jerry M. Wallace School of Osteopathic Medicine. Two issues before that, it was Campbell’s one-of-a-kind trust and wealth management program. And even before that, physician assistants.
I will admit the magazine has been a bit health sciences-heavy recently, but that’s to be expected when the university you write for launches a PA program, med school, physical therapy, public health and nursing programs within a three- to four-year span.
But the great thing about the magazine is there’s always a next one. And for future “next ones,” I’d love to highlight more programs here. We have countless talented students and faculty working in our education, communications, performing arts and religion departments. They all have something to brag about, and they all have a great story to tell.
The one obstacle between your stories and our publications is you. Contact me, or Haven Hottel, or Cherry Crayton or anybody else in our department, and we’ll listen and help you get the word out — whether it’s through a magazine feature, media news release, online story or newsletter announcement. It may even just be a photo for Facebook.
I want all of our departments to feel the love. Email me at [email protected] to get your people known.
