Welcome to interFACE, CAT’s campus-life magazine! Completely produced in-house by a collaborative team of staff and students, interFACE is our way of sharing all the amazing stories, large and small, that happen during our on and off-campus events. We celebrate student and alumni work, recaps of events, staff bios and more, all inside the pages of interFACE.
Why ‘interFACE’? After tasking the GDD/WD students to come up with some ideas, we created a shortlist of possible names and took these out to the wider community. A couple of clear favorites emerged (sorry to whoever suggested ‘One Patty on a White Bun’ – we loved your creativity, but it just wouldn’t fit on a cover!), and we sat down with these to think about which one best captured what we were trying to get across. The word interface is both a noun (a point where two systems, subjects, organizations, etc., meet and interact), and a verb (interact with another system, person, organization, etc.) that also has techie connotations (a device or program enabling a user to communicate with a computer; to connect with another computer or piece of equipment by an interface); lastly, the magazine is the ‘internal face’ of the college. It all seemed to fit nicely, and we hope you think so too.
