DART arrives … a new cultural magazine produced by UMassD Students

DART a new cultural magazine produced by UMassD Students arrives on campus this week. Look for it in paper on campus or check it out online at: http://issuu.com/umassdartmagazine

DART is a product of the Umass Dartmouth Department of English. Over the past few months, undergraduate English Majors in ENL 369-02 (Document Design) and ENL 363-01 (Journalism) – most having little-to-no journalism experience, or ever having seen an InDesign screen have worked tirelessly to put together a fun, cohesive, cultural magazine. Students in the courses produced everything from the front cover to the graphics, page layouts, and article content”.
