July-August Issue Now Hitting Mailboxes
We can always tell when the new issue of the magazine is starting to get delivered to readers’ mailboxes, because we start to see an uptick in class notes, letters to the editor, and other correspondence from readers.
The magazine is printed in Strasburg, Va. (just west of Washington, D.C.) and gets mailed from there. So the Alumni Association members in the mid-Atlantic region are the first to get their copies, and people in other parts of the country tend to get it after that. Our goal is to have it in half of all mailboxes by the first of the month—I think my copy arrived at my house on June 27—so I’m guessing that just about everyone should have it before this week is out.
Our cover story, on Ronald Mallett ’69, ’70g, ’73g, is attracting the most attention from readers so far. My column, in which I report the early results of our reader survey and invite readers to e-mail me with comments about the magazine, is also getting some response. And so far about three readers have contacted us to report a mistake they saw in the Sports section—but that’s all I’m saying about that for now. You’ll just have to find the mistake yourself….
In case you’re not familiar with the print version of The Penn Stater, it’s a benefit of membership in the Alumni Association. You can join here.
