is about our top professors. It's about our awesome students -- and our impressive alums, staff members, parents and friends. It's about their individual passions, talents and knowledge coming together to make JMU what it is. Monty is about JMU at its best.

A supplement to the print magazine, Montpelier, and other campus publications, Monty is JMU's official online publication and originates from several offices that are part of JMU's Identity Leadership Team. We write it, shoot it, design it, slap it on the Web -- and hope you like it as much as we like bringing it to you.

We update Monty weekly, so be on the lookout for fresh stuff.
