2 C/D IS S l IE S INSIDE MOREHOUSE, SEPTEMBER 2008 Inside Morehouse is about the people who make up the Morehouse College community. To tell those stories, WE NEED YOU to send us your ideas, comments and thoughts, along with your news, information about your new books or publications and your commentary for sections like My Word. To send us your information, contact Inside Morehouse Editor Add Seymour Jr. at For more up-to-the minute information about academic departments, administration, athletics, registration, financial aid, as well as the people and places at Morehouse College, go to ^ Inside MOREHOUSE Director of Public Relations Toni O'Neal Mosley Executive Editor Vickie G. Hampton Editor Add Seymour Jr. Calendar Editor Julie Pinkney Tongue Photographers Philip McCollum David Collins Graphic Design Musick Design Web Services Hana Chelikowsky Kara Walker Inside Morehouse is published monthly during the academic year by Morehouse College, Office of Communications, Office of Institutional Advancement. Opinions expressed in Inside Morehouse are those of the authors, not necessarily of the College. FROM THE EDITOR: The most interesting part of the beginning of every school year is the sense of newness and change - changing faces, new facilities and fresh ideas. As you can see, Inside Morehouse has become part of that sense of change as the publication has switched to a tabloid format. Why? The new format for Inside More house accomplishes several things. First, it provides the space we need to tell more of the great stories of achievement and general interest found throughout the campus. Secondly, the expanded format helps with our newly expanded readership. Nearly 1,500 copies of Inside Morehouse now will be mailed to key donors and supporters. And finally, during this time of budgetary considerations, this larger format allows us to de liver a lot more great news with just one issue per month, from our previous twice-monthly schedule. That will result in a significant savings for the College. The primary mission of Inside Morehouse is to promote commu nity within the Morehouse family, both on and off campus. And just as before, we pledge to give the College a Morehouse community newsletter that boldly highlights and spotlights the honors and many activities that go on here each day. There are also new sections, such as What I Do, which introduces the College community to someone at Morehouse and allows that person, in their own words, to talk about their duties here. Inside Morehouse will also help point readers to the College’s website,, as a further source of information about Morehouse, allowing the two entities to work hand-in-hand in giving you an even broader picture of what is going on here. So what you are holding and will be seeing the beginning of each month will be a larger, bolder and brighter publication. However, your involvement will be critical in the continued success of Inside More house. Not only are you highly en couraged to contact us about your activities, news and thoughts to sec tions such as Take Note and My Word, but contact us about your events so we can include them in our comprehensive calendar of events. And let us know what you think about the new format. You can email me directly at or reach me by phone at (404) 572-3690. Or if you see me around campus, stop and introduce yourself. I look forward to hearing from you. Many thanks go out to my Office of Communications colleagues (Toni O’Neal Mosley, Vickie G. Hampton, Elise Durham, Julie Tongue, Minnie Jackson, Kara Walker and Hana Chelikowsky) for their help in the format change in format and being an integral staple each month in the success of Inside Morehouse. But the bulk of the thanks go to you, the reader. You’ve asked for an excellent publication that truly represents the soul of Morehouse College. This is what we will work to make sure you have each month. Enjoy! Add Seymour Jr. Editor Inside Morehouse Clark Atlanta University „ message from the presidents .
