Readers are opening mailboxes this week to find a fresh copy of UMSL Magazine. The University of Missouri–St. Louis released the fall issue on Monday, and the publication is packed with information.
Alumni and friends are learning about Science Literacy through Science Journalism. The innovative program enables high school students to experience the fun side of science by creating a news publication called “SciJourner.” Another feature story provides an in-depth update on the university’s Gateway for Greatness Campaign, which passed its $100 million fundraising goal and now seeks to raise $150 million by July 2012.
The cover story highlights the Dickson String Quartet. The quartet comprises four sibling prodigies who were homeschooled by their mother until the family moved to Florissant, Mo., from Battle Ground, Wash., so that Benjamin, Daniel, Ashley and Brandon could attend UMSL and study under the Arianna String Quartet, the university’s quartet-in-residence.
The university publishes UMSL Magazine for alumni and friends. The magazine highlights excellence at the university. Circulation is 79,000, and the magazine is released twice a year.
