Journey Magazine Produces its Third Issue of the Year
The "Love and Relationships" Issue will release on Valentine's Day

February 13, 2013

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Journey is the student magazine of Florida A&M University’s (FAMU) School of Journalism and Graphic Communication. Released quarterly, Journey is diligently worked on year round by dedicated student writers, graphic designers and photographers. In 2012, Journey was named “Best College Magazine” in the Southeast Journalism Conference (SEJC) and ranked third in the Society of Professional Journalists’ Mark of Excellence Region 3 contests. It was announced last week that four members of Journey’s staff including Gina Cherelus, Chidozie Acey, Morgan Grain and Kristen Swilley, are finalists in the SEJC “Best of the South” competition.

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, FAMU students are highly anticipating Journey’s “Love and Relationships” issue. News editorial student and Editor-in-Chief Morgan Grain said   Love and Relationships is her favorite issue of the year because “it’s always a challenging opportunity to reinvent classic love and romance.”

This issue will feature “Super Singles” on FAMU’s campus, fashion ideas for the perfect date and controversial topics about love and relationships.

News editorial student and female head stylist Robyn Mowatt said this issue will offer great insight on student dating in Tallahassee.

“For the fashion spread, we shot at four different date locations that are unique to FAMU students,” said Mowatt.  “The looks in the fashion spread offer affordable items of clothing that fit the setting for each date spot.”

This year, the Journey staff will be delivering “Journey grams” on Valentine’s Day to students who pre-order. The “Journey grams” will include a copy of the magazine and a small gift from the Journey staff. Students who wish to pre-order should send an email to journeyassociate@gmail.com with their contact and schedule information. Journey magazines will be available in numerous locations on campus on Valentine’s Day. Primary locations include the FAMU Student Union, SJGC and Coleman Library. The official Journey magazine release party is scheduled for February 14 beginning at 10 p.m. at the Prime Time Sports Lounge.
