Jio Castro, a Management Information Systems major at Menlo College has the honor of having one of his photographs published in the last print issue of Newsweek. The historic publication ended almost 80 years in print with its last edition on December 31, 2012. The magazine has transitioned to an all-digital format, called Newsweek Global.

Castro’s photograph is on page 64 in the “Best American Colleges & Universities” section of the magazine. His photograph shows a group of students and is part of an advertisement for Menlo College. “I am so excited about having my photograph included in such a momentus occasion,” said Castro. “I only wish I could find a copy of the issue, because they seem to have been swept up quickly by collectors.”
