Missouri S&T has been in the news a lot lately. In terms of national visibility, the biggest bang (so to speak) comes from Time magazine, which will feature a brief about the camp in its June 30 edition, on newsstands soon.
Other recent news items:

  • The sway of hammocks, quoting James Bogan and originally published in the Los Angeles Times, is repeated in Florida’s Sun Sentinel newspaper. "In 1996, James Bogan, a professor at the Missouri University of Science and Technology, poet and frequent traveler to Brazil, wrote that even today, residents of the Amazon call their hammocks ‘old mother,’ a reference to the way hammocks seem to embrace and envelop sleepers in comforting arms."
  • Copyright quiz limits students’ music file sharing is the Newsweek pickup of an Associated Press story that has been covered by many news organizations across the nation.
  • Across Missouri: Rolla man rides horse to save gas, about how Missouri S&T plumber Roy Snelson cuts down on his fuel bill, has been covered by The Kansas City Star and other media across the state.
