Hello January

It’s a cold, snowy day here at Tennessee Alumnus headquarters, but I’m dreaming of spring – or at least the spring issue of this magazine. I’m in the midst of planning that and the fall issues even while the winter issue heads toward your mailboxes.

Winter 2018 cover
Just a preview of the soon-to-be-delivered winter issue.

You should receive the latest edition this week or next, depending on the mail and how far you live from our distribution center. We hope that you enjoy the stories of hope and overcoming that you will find within its pages or online at https://alumnus.tennessee.edu/. May they be a balm for winter weary souls.

I always look forward to hearing from you after you receive an issue. You respond with story ideas, what you like about an issue or what you didn’t appreciate in an issue. All of your responses help us to make the magazine better for you. Keep your thoughts and ideas coming to alumnus@tennessee.edu.

Also, join us on social media. We’re on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter – sharing stories from the magazine and our campuses and institutes. But you can also connect with us that way as well to share thoughts on the latest issues and story ideas.

I intend to periodically write a blog to keep you apprised of our latest news or as we work on an upcoming issue, sharing the stories and images behind the stories that make their way into the magazine’s pages.

Keep reading,


Managing Editor
