Success isn’t “one size fits all” at Victoria College. Students make up a diverse group that includes everyone from new high school graduates to adult career changers to professionals adding new skills and credentials.

You’ll find them all in the new Victoria College magazine. The first issue made its debut this month with magazines being delivered to nearly 40,000 mailboxes in the Crossroads region.

Full of bold colorful portraits of the stars of Victoria College—students, faculty and staff—the magazine is designed to be visual and easy to read at a glance.

“The new look and feel of the magazine is intended to draw readers in with colorful photos portraying VC students and employees,” said Darin Kazmir, director of Marketing and Communications. “In line with our strategic plan, we hope the magazine will give readers a glimpse of the many elements of VC’s mission and the programs and services VC offers.”

Each issue will highlight what’s new at Victoria College, including academic programs, services that support learning, newly formed partnerships and campus improvements. Readers will also find information about how to enroll, apply for financial aid and choose a career path that fits their goals and interests.

The Spring 2016 issue features VC student Chris Thomas on the cover. Thomas, a professional USA Track and Field competitor and businessman with a master’s degree in economics, chose VC when he decided to make a career switch and become a chiropractor. He’s currently enrolled in prerequisite classes to prepare for his transition to chiropractic school in the fall.

The magazine also describes support services for students including two unique initiatives that prepare new students for college-level coursework. Another article features the wide variety of classes that the Academy of Lifelong Learning offers adults who want to stay active and keep learning.

Kazmir said the magazine has been well received by the community.

“We’ve heard a lot of positive feedback about the first issue from students, residents, and business and education partners,” said Kazmir. “The viewbook style of the publication draws them in, and then they read short tidbits of information that give them a better feel for what Victoria College is all about. It seems to work well for today’s readers who lead busy lives.”
