For the past year, we've been busy behind the scenes crafting and honing a new approach for getting the word out about York's accomplishments. Times change, editorial tastes change and the way we present those tastes change. It all adds up to a need to evolve the University's alumni magazine in directions that are refreshing and surprising, but not wholly unfamiliar. You will notice that the front section of the magazine is now called "View," which deals with things that are York related in terms of outlook and ideas, because that's what it does – it gives you, the reader, a behind-the-scenes view of how the campus is changing physically, whether that be through new buildings or because of engaging campus art (see "Let There Be Light," page 8). The View section is also designed to give readers a glimpse into the kinds of research York professors are pursuing, and how that work could inform the ways we see and interpret the world – and even the universe – around us (see "Galactic Appetite," page 10). In the features section, you'll discover a different take on York stories. The articles are longer, more thoughtful and more in-depth than in the past. You'll notice too that the design gives more breathing room to the images and the text. And at the back of the magazine, you'll find an enhanced Alumni section. We hope it all makes for a more rewarding reading experience. No magazine can be all things to all people, but if we manage to impart a sense of wonder about where York is – and where it's going – then we'll have done our job. – M I C H A E L TO D D Fall 2015 The York University Magazine 5
