The Logos is throwing a barbecue bash to celebrate its 80th year from 3 to 5 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 1 – and the University of the Incarnate Word it covers is invited.
Grilled hamburgers and hot dogs will be served, along with refreshments and cake. During the event, KUIW will provide live music and small prizes will be raffled off to event-goers. The first 100 guests will also receive goodie bags.
The first issue of the newspaper appeared in October 1935, according to an image of “Volume One, Number One” that appears in the Heritage Hall photographs enshrined since 2006 – when UIW marked its 125th anniversary — on the first floor of the Administration Building. That issue announced the naming of an editor and a staff on the front page.
Angela Hernandez, a communication arts major concentrating in journalism, is the latest in a long line of editors who have led the student-run newspaper over the years. The Logos also has an interactive website at http://www.uiwlogos.org
For this occasion, “we wanted to have all the emphasis on the Logos and didn’t want the typical college party, so we came up with a themed kids’ birthday party that reflects (the editors’) personality,” Hernandez said. “We’re all quirky and like to have fun.
“I didn’t realize how much actually goes into getting an event together, we have to make the decorations, it’s such good experience of how to put events together. I have so much more respect for CAB (Campus Activities Board) and other campus organizations.”
