Seniors, don’t miss your (free!) ‘Senior Saturday’

If you are a senior in the JSchool, by now you should (1) have heard (a LOT) about Senior Saturday, and (2) registered to attend.

This (free!) annual event is sponsored by our Society of Alumni & Friends. Its purpose is simple and direct: help graduating journalism students get a job! What could be better than that? (Did I mention that it is free?)

Hell on Wheels, and more

Last quarter’s issue of Southeast Ohio Magazine featured a story about “A Sisterhood of Skaters,” otherwise known as roller derby.

The story, written by Audrey Rabalais, caught my attention because my daughter, a doctoral student at the University of Wisconsin, took up roller derby last year and very much delights in telling me of this recent “bout” or that. For Christmas this year she gave me a T-shirt with her number (594) and derby nickname (“Maul’s Dolls”) on the back.
