Latest SFSU Magazine: now on campus and online

March 2, 2005

Image of the front cover of SFSU MagazineIn "A Life Changed," the cover story in the winter issue of SFSU Magazine, Professor Stanley Goldberg shares the lessons he has learned as a hospice volunteer.

Read his essay and a variety of SFSU features and news in the latest issue, recently delivered to alumni mailboxes and to residence halls and offices across campus. The twice-a-year University magazine is also available online.

Continuing its mission to showcase the outstanding achievements of alumni, faculty, students and staff, SFSU Magazine offers quite a few examples in the new issue.

In "Doing the Time of His Life," alumnus Jeffrey Tambor, the award-winning actor who stars on the FOX comedy series, "Arrested Development," reveals that his earliest theatrical training at SFSU began when he was only 8 years old.

Read about alumna Jenny Thompson's book, "War Games: Inside the World of Twentieth-Century Reenactors," a fascinating exploration of the motivations of those who recreate modern warfare.

Alumni and staff who remember the long and complicated process of registering for classes at SFSU's "Problem Center" can rest assured those days are over after reading "Online, Not In Line." The article takes a look at how the Web has changed the way business is done on campus, reducing wait time and making life easier for those who work and study at SFSU.

Meet a cat who can scat with the best of 'em in "Kitty Margolis: Making It Up as She Goes Along." The jazz sensation shares how a decision to leave Harvard and study at SFSU has made all the difference in her professional singing career.

Readers can also learn how the University got the gator for a mascot, where to dine in style on campus, which two alums just starred in the same television movie, what birthday SFSU recently celebrated, how one student is honoring the memory of soldiers who lost their lives in Iraq -- and much more.

Also available online -- an easy way to opine. An online survey takes just a few minutes to complete and responses will be taken into consideration as the staff plans future issues.

The SFSU Magazine Web site also includes an easy way to request a back issue, update an address, and send a class note or a letter to the editor.

Since its launch in 2000, SFSU Magazine has won three awards of excellence from the Council for Advancement and Support of Higher Education.
