UNCG Campus Weekly

Campus Weekly is published each Wednesday when classes are in session. In the summer, it is published biweekly.

In memoriam: Trudy Atkins

Trudy Atkins, who led UNCG’s publications from the 1960s until 1982, died March 15. She was editor of UNCG’s alumni magazine, Alumni News, for 18 years. 

She left UNCG in 1982 to work for Dr. William Friday, president of the UNC System, until his retirement in 1986, her obituary notes. She then worked for the family business, Southern Trade Publications, publishing trade journals and the Retirement Resource Guide.

She maintained a relationship with UNCG’s communications staff over the years, very interested in stories or event announcements that would be of interest to her readers. She was asked to contribute memories for the 125th anniversary issue of UNCG Magazine – in a great quote, she recalled her classes with Randall Jarrell.

The memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. on Thursday, March 21, at West Market Street United Methodist Church, 302 West Market Street.
