This special edition of The Burr commemorates the 50th anniversary of May 4, 1970. The Burr staff worked tirelessly during the COVID-19 pandemic to produce this magazine remotely. Although printing has been delayed due to the pandemic, the staff still wanted to get the magazine to our audience. We’re sharing this digital version of the magazine now and plan to print copies when it’s safe to return to campus.
