Congratulations to the editorial staff of our University magazine on producing a first-class product. I have a graduate degree from [Cal State LA], but my undergraduate studies were accomplished at a private
university on the East Coast (Fairfield University). Earlier in my life, I was the assistant to the dean of Kenyon College
in Ohio. Both private institutions of higher education have had high quality magazines for their alumni for many years. I’ve been receiving magazines regularly from all
three institutions of higher education.
I always have felt Cal State LA Today did not meet the standards set by the other two schools, but today I can say unequivocally California State University, Los Angeles Magazine not only matches their high quality, but has set new standards for others to aspire to achieve. I enjoyed reading the entire Spring 2017 edition. I felt compelled to share my enthusiasm with the editorial staff.
Our University magazine is the public face of the quality of our institution. This edition makes me proud to be an alumnus. Please keep up your excellence.
