The cover of the winter issue of St. Edward’s University Magazine was the subject of a fair amount of debate in our editorial offices.
Does it tell a compelling story? Would it make you open the magazine? Does it connect our readers to the university?
We asked all of the questions you’re supposed to ask when selecting a cover, but it really came down to whether the image of the chapel was enough. Exciting enough. Unexpected enough. Powerful enough.
We went back and forth so many times.
The stand-alone image of the simple white clapboard chapel isn’t fancy. It’s not grand. But it’s ours. By putting it on the cover, we hope it tells you something about St. Edward’s University and the values it holds true. We hope it floods you with memories of what the building meant to you as a student.
Most of all, we hope it makes you open up the magazine to get an up-close look at the extensive chapel renovation project.
