Among the most fun and colorful North Carolina state publications are the magazines of the different campuses in the University of North Carolina System. For example, Western Carolina University publishes Western: The Magazine of Western Carolina University, this week’s State Doc Pick of the Week. Browse the Summer, 2008, issue, which can be found at http://digital.ncdcr.gov/u?/p249901coll22,17434.
You will see stunning works of art from the University’s Fine Art Museum; an article on joint University and town efforts to revitalize the downtown area of Cullowhee, with a timeline of interesting events from the town’s past; and a list of former Catamount athletes who are now playing their sports professionally. Western is a great example of the high quality of magazines published by the public universities of North Carolina. Issues of Western can be searched, viewed, downloaded, and/or printed at the online North Carolina State Publications Collection.
