The Hill Magazine


We aim to inform, educate, and entertain our readers by bringing them the stories of our alumni and faculty while illuminating topics of national and international concern. Rounding out the picture are updates on campus and sporting events, staff and faculty feats, and student and alumni achievements. Class Notes, which give each alumnus a chance to shine, complete our profile of "the Hill" experience.
