On and Off the Page: Your Multimedia College Magazine

St. Norbert College Magazine editor Susan Allen shares some of the web-exclusive content featured in the Fall/Winter 2015 issue of St. Norbert College Magazine, available online.

Your magazine is in the mail, but until it arrives, you can enjoy the new issue at www.snc.edu/magazine, where you’ll find we've added in the multimedia storytelling that we just can’t deliver via the postal service!
  • An interview with an eight-year-old getting a head start on her college search. Meet GraceLynn Schroeder-Haag, who, with her parents, came to find out what college was all about. (Of course, we gave her the tour, in company with one of our regular student guides – and with an introduction to Norby Knight thrown in, just for her benefit.)
  • A trip inside the priory, whose last priestly residents packed their boxes earlier in the fall. The Norbertines who long made their home in the historic building have now moved to join their confrères at St. Norbert Abbey, and the priory building has been gifted to the college.
  • A photo gallery that invites you into the 2015 Convocation experience: the start of their college years for our incoming class, and a welcome back to campus for our entire student body.
  • A goodly percentage of that same student body saying a hearty thank you to those whose generosity throughout Campaign St. Norbert: Full Ahead is fueling the rich educational experience they are now enjoying.
  • Phil Kostka ’15 taking his place among the first of the first: the first St. Norbert grad to join the very first class at the Medical College of Wisconsin-Green Bay, based right here on campus.
  • Nick Patton ’03 (Communications), illustrator, interviewing Caldecott Medal winner Dan Santat, author of “The Adventures of Beekle: the Unimaginary Friend.”
  • Regina Barreca, author of “They Used to Call Me Snow White … But I Drifted,” interviewed while she was at St. Norbert for a presentation on gender and humor in the workplace.
And we invite you, too, to sneak a peek at two particularly thought-provoking articles from the print issue (and also available online): our cover story, Gaining Admission, a thoughtful examination of the changing field of college admission; and Land Scouts, the story of a grassroots movement that arrived in Wisconsin with a new faculty member and bears her stamp: that of a young artist concerned with the ways even city-dwellers are called to care for and appreciate the land. 

As always, enjoy the issue – and let us know what you think!

The online magazine features much of the material from our thrice-yearly print issue as well as a slate of web exclusives; new content is added weekly.
