2nd Annual Magazine Launch Party

The sweet smell of success came not only from the food being served in Treadaway Hall but also from two students who won awards for their graphic design final projects at the second annual Taste of StMU magazine launch on Friday, Nov. 18, 2011.

Volunteer judges who work in the graphic design field selected Emily Scruggs (see magazine) as the winner of the “Professionals’ Choice” award. Her respective “chef” also received an apron imprinted with the Taste of StMU logo. Nearly 40 alumni, faculty and staff attended this event and voted Brissa Renteria as the winner of the “People’s Choice” award.

The magazine launch party gave graphic design students the opportunity to showcase what they have learned throughout the semester by editing and creating their own 20-page edition of Taste of StMU magazine, complete with ads, photographs and stories. The chefs featured in their magazines provided the food for the event.

On the menu were arroz con gandules, cheese enchiladas, Cuban lechon asado, pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, flan, peanut butter chocolate chip brownies, no-bake strawberry frosted cheesecake, grey poupon steak with garlic mashed potatoes, gluten-free red velvet cake, seven layer dip, enchiladas, rojas, spinach and ricotta stuffed shells, steaming spaghetti with meat sauce, swedish meatballs and grilled chicken breast with mango salsa.

This project also was featured on the December 2011 issue of E-Talk from St. Mary’s University. See Flickr photo album.
