The August 2019 Laker Log has been released! 

We are exploring the feasibility of printing a limited number of Laker Log magazines twice annually, hard copies to mail to interested alumni. Because no funding has been earmarked for a publication, the printed edition would have to be self-sustaining. Please click here 
if you would be interested in receiving a printed edition of the Laker Log magazine.
