Newest Luminus magazine takes you around the world

Grab your passport and head around the world with the latest issue of Luminus, Memorial’s alumni magazine.
This issue focuses broadly on the theme of internationalization, an area of strategic importance to Memorial.
In the cover story – Eight degrees of separation – you’ll meet interesting alumni living and working on each of the seven continents, plus the world’s oceans. The cover features a unique design entitled Wayfinding alumni, created by alumna Tara Feener, B.Eng.’11. A front-end engineer living in New York City, Ms. Feener works with FiftyThree, a tech company specializing in mobile creation tools.
“Trying to capture the essence of internationalization and Memorial is like trying to catch lightning in a bottle. But we try,” wrote Dr. Penny Blackwood, B.Sc.(Hons.)’88, executive director, Office of Alumni Affairs and Development, in her message in the magazine.
The latest issue also features an inspiring Q&A with alumnus – and honorary degree recipient – Dr. Bruce Alyward, director-general for the World Health Organization’s Ebola response. You’ll also learn now the Marine Institute reaches far beyond our shores; discover the important contributions the Newfoundland Regiment made in the Gallipoli Campaign during the First World War; and find out about a special connection between Grenfell Campus and Belize. All that, plus a new creative story from award-winning author Ed Riche and much more!
“Our university and alumni are doing incredible work that is affecting and reflecting across the globe,” said Dr. Blackwood.
The editorial team also want to hear from its readers to determine if they want to continue to receive a hard copy in the mail or receive a digital copy of Luminus. Learn want you need to do by checking out page 15 of this issue.

Established in 1971, Luminus is published twice a year by the Office of Alumni Affairs and Development. Graduates receive a free lifetime subscription to the magazine.
