PURSUIT is an experiment. PURSUIT represents a new concept and format for the B-W ALUMNUS magazine. It is an attempt to do a better job of communicating with all who are interested in what is happening at Baldwin-Wallace College.
Articles by and about alumni, students, faculty and administration will be included in the new magazine. There will also be stories relevant to the issues of education.
The personals column, which has been an important part of the ALUMNUS, will be published as a separate issue of PURSUIT three times a year, so that we can provide broader news coverage about alumni more frequently.
The decision was made to change the ALUMNUS because we wanted a magazine which would more effectively relate what is going on at B-W and in higher education.
After several weeks of searching for a new name, we settled on PURSUIT because it best expresses the purpose of the College and this medium. Our president and his chief associates are constantly in pursuit of better qualified people to join our faculty, better facilities and educational programs appropriate to the times. And, the faculty as a whole pursues better ways to provide students with a quality education.
PURSUIT represents what we are seeking to do: pursue the best education has to offer, pursue creative ideas, pursue knowledge - the search or pursuit is unending.
Today's students are more aware of the world in which they live and are more vocal about it. PURSUIT will provide an outlet for their expressions to those outside their own community.
The opinions expressed in our articles will not necessarily be those of the College or of the editors, but they will reflect the atmosphere of the campus and of the community of higher education.
Your comments about PURSUIT will be welcomed.
