The academic school year has officially come to a close at Waynesburg University; therefore, this blog will be on a bit of a hiatus until students return to campus in the fall.
Keep an eye out for the witty quotes, creative events and conference updates that are sure to be posted soon.
Thanks for a great year!
The first graduating class of Waynesburg University Society of Professional Journalist seniors are (from left) Angela Wadding, Amanda Wishner, Kyle Edwards and Sarah Bell. All four SPJ seniors are communication majors with an emphasis in print journalism. They graduate on May 19.
We wish our seniors the best of luck in all of their future endeavors; they will be missed.
Don’t worry. The picture of the SPJ members that will actually appear in the Mad Anthony, Waynesburg University’s yearbook, is both beautiful and serious.
Even though we’re a professional organization, sometimes goofing around makes for a better environment – right?
So, here we are – the first group of Waynesburg SPJ members (in all our glory).
At a meeting Monday, the following students were selected as next year’s SPJ officers:
President: Katherine Mansfield
Vice President: Kelly Witas
Secretary: Nick Farrell
Treasurer: Abby Lutcher
Historian: Jenny Schouppe
Congratulations to all five of you!
The last couple weeks have been hectic, but good, in the Department of Communication. We only have three weeks of classes left, so everyone is scrambling to get projects, papers and assignments done at the last minute.
The Waynesburg chapter of SPJ is holding elections for 2013-2014 officers on Monday, April 15. The new officers will be posted shortly after.
Four SPJ members and our adviser will be traveling to the region one conference. The university’s newspaper, the Yellow Jacket, won a Mark of Excellence Award through SPJ – the SPJ members attending the conference and receiving the award are also on the Yellow Jacket staff.
Four senior SPJ members reflected on their internship experiences during a presentation last night.
More coming soon!
The organizations in the Department of Communication, including the Society of Professional Journalists, came together to fill 20 baskets for Easter Buddies.
Easter Buddies is an event promoted on campus where organizations, students and faculty come together to fill Easter baskets for local families in need.
