About the Cover

Photographer Jeff Ross took this picture of President Milton Glick, Graduate Student Association President Rebecca Bevans ’01 (psychology), President Emeritus Joe Crowley and Associated Students of the University of Nevada President Sarah Ragsdale from inside the under-construction Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center on opening day of the Joe Crowley Student Union, Nov. 15. The fourth floor of the Knowledge Center looks out on the new student union. Synergy between the two buildings has been incorporated into their design: traffic from one will flow seamlessly to the other, allowing students, faculty and visitors to study, conduct research, socialize, eat, shop and enjoy entertainment within walking distance of each activity. The Knowledge Center is slated to open in August 2008.
