Welcome to the Fall 2016 issue of UCR Magazine

Read the magazine online, share features on your social networks, view it on your mobile devices, and more.

Writer Sean Nealon travels with a team of UCR scientists as they track Bombus polaris, an elusive bumblebee that could teach us about climate change in the Arctic, one of the least understood environments on Earth. Read — and watch — the journey that tracks a significant group of native pollinators in Alaska.

Both KUCR and the UCR Bell Tower have important birthdays — 50! — this year as well.

If you remember the sound of the bells floating over the campus, let the music ring again in our feature Bell Tower by the Numbers.

To celebrate UC Riverside’s iconic radio station, we talk to some of UCR’s most notable radio personalities — who’ve gone on to become legislators, activists, Pulitzer Prize winners, venture capitalists, producers — about how this tiny radio station sparked their life goals.

Lastly, a profile on Olympic runner Brenda Martinez ’10, shows us the inner workings of a champion. She says, “Behind every strong, independent woman lies a broken little girl who had to learn to get back up! I will be back!”
