Talisman builds on its legacy in new form


Kylee Kaetzel

Hi, Herald readers!

I know you’ve heard this many times already this week, but welcome to the Hill! We’re glad you’re here. As the Talisman’s Editor-in-Chief, I want to give you a quick update on our happenings.

The Talisman is the oldest student publication on WKU’s campus. We started publishing yearbooks in 1924, but this year we are embarking on a new journey.

This semester, we will be creating our first high-end, semi-annual student lifestyle magazine. Our magazine will continue the Talisman’s tradition of high-quality journalism, stunning photography and intriguing media. Our staff of 50+ photographers, writers and designers is already working to create something you will connect with.

We will also continually update our website, WKUTalisman.com, with relevant and quirky content about student life, WKU and the Bowling Green community. Through these two mediums, we will continue to be the forever-present, bright and cheery voice of the student body at WKU.

If you see or hear about an issue on campus that you think should be brought to life, we’d love for you to submit it through our website. Since this is the first issue of our magazine, we have the freedom to make it relevant to you and the topics you care about.

We hope you’ll pick up the final, printed product at the end of the semester and read something that matters to you. In the meantime, check out our website daily, and follow us on social media to keep up with our stories — we’re sure they will make you laugh.

Our staff is so excited about continuing the Talisman legacy this year, and we hope you are ready to join us.

From the whole Talisman team, thank you for sticking with us through this transformation, and we hope you have a wonderful semester at WKU!
