Orientation gets new look, new focus
Recipients of the 2005 issue of Orientation may not recognize it right away: the publishers have been “tweaking.”
The new issue is full-color throughout and printed in a more streamlined size. However, it’s still the same award-winning, faith-based magazine serving as a vital resource for beginning college and university students as they prepare for a new and challenging phase in their lives.
Published by the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry, Orientation features practical articles on coping with change and campus life, spiritual reflections and tips on using the Bible as a resource in daily life, and fun features about music, movies, computers and other ways college students spend their time between midterms.
The magazine will undergo even more changes in 2006, when it begins publishing as an “e-zine.” A printed magazine in the new format is still available for order at www.gbhem.org/orientation. From now on, orders will be taken exclusively at that Web address. Subscribers may click “How to Order” and choose their ordering method. The new issue will be available May 1.
“The ‘new’ Orientation was unveiled in 1978. Now it’s time for the ‘new and improved’ Orientation,” said editorial and creative director Terri J. Hiers. “Today’s students are very comfortable in communicating and receiving information electronically, so in the near future, Orientation will be there on the Web for them as an e-zine.”
