Fall edition of university magazine available for pickup at library, HFR

Copies of the fall 2019 edition of Western Carolina University Magazine are now available for faculty and staff pickup at two locations on campus – Hunter Library and H.F. Robinson Administration Building.

Effective with the winter 2018 edition, the Office of Communications and Public Relations no longer distributes individual copies of the print version of the magazine to faculty and staff in an effort to reduce expenses.

University magazine distribution points are the foyer of Hunter Library and the front desk area of the Office of Communications and Public Relations, located in Suite 420 of H.F. Robinson Building.

The magazine also is available online at magazine.wcu.edu, where readers have access to the same stories that are in the print edition, along with extra online content including videos, photo galleries and more in-depth coverage.

The current edition of the magazine features a cover-story profile of Western Carolina University Chancellor Kelli R. Brown, tracing her life from her early years showing horses across the Midwest through her development as a higher education administrator to her selection as WCU’s 12th chancellor.

The issue also shines a light on WCU’s Cherokee Center and the connections it builds between the university and the Eastern Band; showcases the Pride of the Mountains Marching Band as it looks to raise funds to participate in this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade; details some of the many campus construction projects currently underway or on the drawing boards; and shares the accomplishments of a multitude of WCU alumni.
