We Want You to Want It! JQ’s Summer 2009 Issue is Here!!

SUMMER 2009 ISSUE – click image below to download PDF

The leader of a band that’s sold over 20 million records and brought the words “At Budokan” to the big time, the new Japanese ambassador to New York, a tour of Philadelphia that’s uncannily Zen, and chats with award-winning writers, French pastry operations managers and even a maid-outfitted cosplay superstar complete with bunny ears. All this and more in the new summer issue of JETAANY’s JQ magazine.


To preserve our budget for alumni events, and in an effort to be greener and save paper, JETAANY will begin charging for print copies of JQ Magazine. The cost is $12 for 4 issues and you will only have the opportunity to sign up once a year – annual subscriptions will occur each fall.  Please note that the magazine, in its entirety, is also available online. If you would like to sign up to receive a paper copy by mail, please follow the PayPal link below (Add to Cart) or e-mail for more information. Remember you must put “JQ subscription” and your desired mailing address in the Paypal comments box.

Major domo to (from left) Steven Horowitz, Stacy Smith, Alexei Esikoff, Liz Wanic, Adren Hart, Justin Tedaldi, and (off camera) Joe Marucheck, Shree Kurlekar, Anson Mau and Seiko Kamiya for help stuffing and mailing the current issue.
