You will probably receive a letter from Student Publications this week.

It begins the official campaign for the 100th anniversary of the Eastern News, which will be November 6, 2015. The EIU Foundation and the Journalism Department are kicking off the "Publishing for the Next 100 Years" campaign with the goal of raising a $100,000 endowment to benefit the Eastern News.

The Department seeks to solicit large donors (campaign "publishers") and former Eastern News staffs in order to reach its goal.

The correspondence also indicates that the Department will be throwing an anniversary celebration in 2015.
