Before the latest copy of St. Norbert College Magazine hits your mailbox, the online issue goes up at www.snc.edu/magazine. It’s worth taking a look, and not just for the sneak preview. Our web edition includes video, photo galleries and new content. (It’s updated weekly.)

SNC learns
Our cover story takes a look at what a St. Norbert college student needs to learn – and how, in a wired world, they learn it. Watch John Day (Modern Languages & Literatures) explain how he is remaking the textbook for students who have been part of the digital era since they were born. And enjoy a tour of our newest space for collaborative learning with Kristin Vogel (Library). 

The backstage experience for our theatre students is changing, too: Enjoy as Paul Mashl (Theatre Facilities) shows us a few dramatic improvements.

Greetings to a new coach, farewell to founding players
Meet our new football coach, Steve Opgenorth. “Coach O” outlines his vision for a winning team, in conversation with Kevin Quinn (Academic Affairs). And, say good-bye to the first women to play Green Knight hockey: The team just concluded its successful fourth season, and will see its first graduates this May.

Alums online
Our News of Alumni section is spilling over! Online, there’s a retrospective of the career of the late and legendary Packers photographer Vern Biever ’48, courtesy of the Wisconsin Magazine of History. Some St. Norbert history, too, in a look back at the Ugly tradition on campus and word from our first Ugly, George Desmarais ’56, as well as from Joe Remitz Jr. ’01 and Cristi Burrill ’08 (Student Affairs). We think you’ll be as moved as we were, too, by the account of John Burgoyne ’64 and his, eventual, arrival as a student at St. Norbert. John has gone on to great things since, including a stint as president and general manager of IBM China and, now, as volunteer fire chief for a small town in Texas. It’s been an interesting shift in career – and you can read about the late-breaking career changes of Jay Williams ’73 and Joanna Riopelle ’76, too, in "Never Too Late."

In case you missed it
While you’re online, take one more look at our last issue. Among recent updates, we recommend two video stories: one, on the students teams who competed in our Big Ideas contest; the other, on the weeklong residency by Stuart Pimsler Dance & Theater

Enjoy! And, as always, let us know what you think.
