About LMU Magazine

LMU Magazine is the university magazine of Loyola Marymount University, a Jesuit, Catholic university in Los Angeles, California. 

LMU Magazine draws on the legacy of the university’s three Catholic sponsoring religious communities: the Society of Jesus, the Religious of the Sacred Heart and the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange. As is the university, the magazine is rooted in and committed to the Los Angeles-Southern California region. It addresses issues that LMU alumni and other members of the university community are concerned about and in which they participate through their work or personal commitments. LMU offers its students a challenging academic curriculum to its students, and LMU Magazine is committed to producing challenging and professional content that reflects the quality of the education offered to its alumni when they were students.

LMU Magazine is produced by the university’s Marketing, Communications and External Relations Division. The magazine’s staff aims to offer a publication that competes with the most sophisticated, professional journals occupying the magazine marketplace. The magazine is known for smart, interesting, timely and insightful editorial content and is characterized by excellent writing and high-quality professional photography, illustration and design. Published online (magazine.lmu.edu) and twice a year in print, the magazine is distributed to alumni, full-time faculty and staff of the university, graduate students, parents and guardians of undergraduate students, donors and other friends of the university.
