PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. (May 11, 2011) – All Points North, SUNY Plattsburgh’s student-run magazine, has launched its fourth publication.
The theme of this year’s issue is Survival — with stories encompassing the North Country region, Vermont and the Adirondacks. The magazine has been published every spring semester since 2008 and is available for free at locations throughout the region.
The students involved in All Points North get to challenge themselves by tracking down stories that are pertinent to a much broader readership than found on campus, according to All Points North Editor-in-Chief Shaun Kittle.
For this issue, student writers covered topics including rescues in the Adirondack High Peaks; the ongoing debate over how to stimulate Tupper Lake’s economy; a wildlife rehabilitation center in Wilmington; a man who moved to the North Country to recover from a traumatic brain injury he suffered in San Francisco; and a camp in Vermont for children with cancer. All of the stories were researched, written, photographed and edited by students with the intent of producing a magazine for people who call the North Country home.
The 10-person staff at All Points North is extremely proud of the work they have contributed, Kittle said.
“Our writers and photographers get the opportunity to leave the comfort of the campus and cover stories in the real world, and, in the process, they become a part of this very special area. We are the only publication on campus to tackle such a challenge, and I am impressed by their dedication and ability. I think the people of the North Country will greatly enjoy reading their work,” Kittle said.
All Points North is available at the following Plattsburgh locations: Koffee Kat, 104 Margaret St.; Baxter’s Bagels, 22 Brinkerhoff St.; Corner-Stone Bookshop, 110 Margaret St.; Benji’s Café, 103 Margaret St.; Cheechako Taco, 87 Margaret St.; Headhunters Salon, 438 Route 3, # 500; Champlain Pain Relief, 159 Margaret St., # 500; and the Angell College Center desk at SUNY Plattsburgh. Copies may also be picked up at Hope Lodge, 237 East Ave., Burlington, Vt.
