The University of New Orleans (UNO) recently revitalized its favorite publication for students, alumni and friends, giving it a new appearance and a new name, Silver & Blue.
The name was chosen after receiving more than 100 reader entries. This name was from a former student, LaToya Murray, from Lake Charles. It shows the spirit of UNO, emphasizing its work ethic, tradition, grit and elegance.
This new edition has been published just in time for the Making History celebration at UNO, from Oct. 31 through Nov. 4. In turn, it allows visitors to have the opportunity to see the collaboration between UNO, "NCIS: New Orleans," a popular network series, and Nims Center Studios.
Furthermore, the magazine features an article about an alumnus and staffer spending his vacation saving lives. Other stories are about how UNO student-athletes and students helped communities during the south Louisiana flooding this fall.
In addition, the publication features a profile of an alumnus who earned the Distinguished Alumni honor award from UNO. After graduating in 1978, Mark Romig sold original New Orleans experiences on a global scale while he was the official stadium announcer for the Saints team from New Orleans.
Other articles in the magazine focus on how UNO students travel for studies and internships, along with faculty research and publication projects.
