Future members are invited to enjoy the sample feature story The Art of the Savitar 

The Savitar, named after the Hindu god of the sun, began its life in 1894 as the University of Missouri’s student yearbook. For the next 111 years, students cut their artistic and editorial teeth creating stories, poems, essays, photographs, lithographs, paintings, illustrations, cartoons and advertisements for its pages. In so doing, they documented campus life and student imagination down the generations.
