Our magazine makes an impression on industry blogger

April 3, 2011


The [latest] issue of Beloit College Magazine has received a nod from the industry’s premier blogger, Dale Keiger of Umagazinology.

In a post titled “UMag Inbox” on March 30, Keiger—associate editor of Johns Hopkins Magazine—employs his typical tongue-in-cheek humor as he talks about our magazine.

“Marlo Amelia Buzzell’s “Turtles All the Way Down” is a lot of fun, digging into what seems at first like trivia but turns out to be part of the deep history of not only the college but the community and the region,” he writes. “Plus, it included this priceless picture of the 1947 synchronized swimming team performing a water ballet with lighted candles. They were called The Terrapins. Some of the best stuff is the stuff you can’t make up.”

Editor Susan Kasten couldn’t be more pleased about the recognition.

“UMagazinology is the only blog in the country I’m aware of that covers the college / university magazine publishing niche,” she says. “It’s gratifying to me that he was inspired to open Beloit College Magazine and even better that he genuinely enjoyed the cover story written by our own Amelia Buzzell’10.”
