Students present Cultura, their magazine journalism capstone

Journalism students in Dr. Nettleton's magazine capstone produced Cultura, a bilingual magazine about arts at Marquette and in Milwaukee. Cultura was produced entirely by the students. Students were required to take on roles writing, editing, fact checking and designing. Cultura was partnered with Spanish students in Dr. Julia Paulk's classes, who helped with the translation of some stories.
