Happy birthday: Santa Clara Magazine turns 30

Monday, Oct. 3, 2011



It was 30 years ago this fall that then-President William Rewak, S.J., enlisted the assistence of a talented editor by the name of Peg Major to launch a new publication: Santa Clara Magazine.

That inaugural issue included an essay by Fr. Rewak, "Saints, diamonds, and bears," on the changing nature of higher education. In it he observed: "We are here for that human interchange where wisdom is born, to serve intellect and to touch the human heart."

To commemorate the occasion, we've posted the entire Fall 1981 edition of SCM online. You'll find articles by faculty and alumni on the media and mass psychology, love and the (then) new Catholic marriage law, the high-tech boom, and "Santa Clara Potpourri"—a visual quiz of campus landmarks.
