Letter from the Student Editors
Magazine Staff
As our first year as master's students at the Missouri School of Journalism comes to a close, we are still amazed by the opportunities the J-School has to offer. We recently learned that the American Society of News Editors will soon be headquartered in the Reynolds Journalism Institute. This past semester students also launched the "American Next" project in conjunction with American Public Media.

You can read more about American Next and other professional partnerships in an article that showcases how working with these organizations benefit J-School students.

With MU's move to the Southeastern Conference, student reporters gain another opportunity to cover sports in a different arena. Meet alumni who are now working in SEC country, and learn of some traditions and behaviors from those already reporting in the fervor.

The J-School also encourages students to focus on the theoretical. Learn how two doctoral students are furthering the field of knowledge as they study journalism as a conversation and the mathematics of journalism.

We'd be remiss if we didn't recognize the many contributions of Brian Brooks to the Missouri School of Journalism. We hope you'll read about his nearly four decades of service and his lasting legacy.

If all of this makes you a bit nostalgic for your college days, take a fun quiz to test your knowledge of J-School deans.

This issue wouldn't have been possible without the efforts of the students in the Public Relations Writing course. They spent two months researching, interviewing, writing and editing the stories included in the magazine. Please read, enjoy and share your thoughts with us at
