New employee magazine name unveiled
onQ is the name of the new employee magazine, scheduled to appear on campus in September. The name was selected from more than 60 suggestions submitted by employees who participated in a naming contest for the new publication during May and June.
“We are very pleased with the participation and thank all of those who sent in suggestions,” says Lorinda Peterson, Associate Director, University Communications. “The suggestions were varied and there was much discussion about which one best fit the magazine’s objectives.”
onQ was suggested by Ken Cuthbertson, Editor, Alumni Review, who obviously employed his editorial and writing expertise in coming up with the name. “The name is playful and suggests that the articles in the publication are timely and at the ready when the reader wants them, like actors on cue in the wings as they wait to go on stage,” he says. The selection committee chose the name from a list of submissions without knowing who had submitted it.
Anita Jansman, editor for onQ, is pleased with the new name. “It implies that stories will be timely, relevant, and on target,” she says.
Since the winning name was selected from an individual in the Marketing and Communications office, the $25 gift certificate for the Campus Bookstore will be awarded to a contest participant by draw. The winner will be announced in the premiere issue of onQ.
