To our readers,
We are stoked to bring you a brand new, one of a kind JMU publication named 22807.
Our goal is to give you great stories that are hip, fresh, modern and exciting. Our publication name is a reference to James Madison University’s postal code in the heart of Harrisonburg. Both our town and school have so much to offer with so many people coming together from all different walks of life. We wanted to create something that showcases a different side of JMU and highlights an alternative side of Harrisonburg that other publications tend to ignore. We are focused on bringing our readers all things art, food, music and culture in the ‘burg. Life in Harrisonburg is fun, exciting and extends beyond the limits of our campus.
We’d especially like to thank the people who have helped us in class, on campus and back home in putting together the inaugural edition.
We hope that our stories inspire you to make the most of your time at JMU by getting out and experiencing everything Harrisonburg has to offer. From house shows and DJ sets downtown to new biking trails, hookah bars and roller derby, read and see what 22807 has in store for you.
— Kellan Howell, Meaghan MacDonald, and Rachel Dawson, 22807’s executive editors
