The Taste of StMU magazine launch party is an annual event sponsored by All Events San Antonio that occurs near the end of each fall semester to celebrate the accomplishments of the graphic design student editors. On the menu are foods prepared by the “chefs” they featured in their magazines. Awards are given to students in two categories, “Professionals’ Choice” and “People’s Choice;” the winners’ partner chefs also receive a commemorative award plate and special apron imprinted with the Taste of StMU logo, respectively. The magazine launch party is by invitation only; guests include university officials, department faculty and staff, Marianists, alumni, sponsors and professional judges representing the fields of graphic design, mass communication, marketing and food catering. Everyone gets a sample of what the students have learned and what the chefs have cooked—a true Taste of StMU!
