Roanoke College magazine preview

by rcnewsblog on November 21, 2014

Layout 1The upcoming issue of Roanoke magazine shines a spotlight on the Cregger Center, currently taking shape on the northeast end of campus, where Bowman Hall once stood. The cover story details how and why this project was conceived, and all that it will offer once completed in 2016.

The magazine features lots of other great content as well, including profiles of five alumni whose recently released books represent diverse literary styles and genres; a story about how parents have become invaluable members of the Roanoke College family; and a look back at the impressive 33-year career of Susan Dunagan, head women’s basketball coach, who announced her retirement in June.

The magazine is scheduled to reach mailboxes within the next two weeks. An online version can be found next week on the Roanoke College website. If you are not on the magazine mailing list but would like to request a copy, please contact the Office of Public Relations, (540) 375-2244.
