The University Relations staff produces Montevallo Today, the alumni magazine for the University of Montevallo, and Vallo Voice.
Montevallo Today is available on the Alumni website. The award-winning alumni magazine is circulated throughout the United States and in more than 25 countries abroad. The magazine was re-designed from cover to cover in spring 2011. It features alumni profiles, a message from the president, campus news and features, athletics updates, and a widely read class notes section.
The magazine, published three times per year, is offered in pdf format.
Vallo Voice, the campus newsletter, is published weekly on Tuesdays during the fall and spring semesters and biweekly during throughout the summer. Vallo Voice includes University news, general announcements, news about UM faculty, staff and students, an events calendar. The deadline for submissions is end of day Thursday for the following Tuesday. Submissions may be sent to University Relations, via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org with “Vallo Voice: Submission” as the subject line.
All three student publications, produced and edited by students and advised by members of the faculty and staff, are distributed free to the campus community. You don’t have to be a seasoned journalist to apply for a position on any of the publications – writers, photographers, artists, editors, and salespeople are always welcome.
Editors are elected each spring by the Student Publications Committee, which is made up of UM students, faculty and staff members. The editors assemble their remaining staff. Student publications are overseen by Student Life.
