The May/June Issue is En Route

May June 2013Our May/June issue is hitting mailboxes this week, and Civil War buffs will instantly recognize that blue Union soldier’s cap on our cover.

On the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, senior editor Lori Shontz ’91  took part in the Alumni Association’s Civil War Study Tour — and met some interesting folks along the way. Calling these tourists “Gettysburg fans” sounds odd, but after reading the piece, titled “The Visitors,” we think you’ll understand why some Americans keep coming back to this historic place.

For another feature, “IM Legends,” I collected readers’ favorite memories from intramural sports at Penn State. Some of these stories had me laughing out loud, and choosing only a few to include in the magazine wasn’t easy. Also, be sure to check out the fantastic illustrations by artist Brian Ajhar.

In “Days in a Life,” you’ll see the work of photojournalist Will Yurman, who, for the past decade, has taken one photo each day. His work captures moments that might otherwise go unnoticed, including some wonderful shots of his kids and downtown State College. See even more photos from Yurman’s “A day A photo” project on his website.
