Old Dogs, New Tricks

A blog for non-traditional students

Congrats to the News Record!

I wanted to acknowledge the great job the News Record (the student paper at the University of Cincinnati for which this blog was originally created) has done this year.  The Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) “selected The News Record as second-best overall among all non-daily collegiate student newspapers in its multi-state region as part of the organization’s annual Mark of Excellence Awards,” said Leonard Penix, director of student media, in an email sent to our program list-serv.  The paper also took first place in the sport photography category.  So I just want to say way to go to my colleagues and classmates for all their hard work, and in particular congratulate our editor-in-chief Kristy Conlin, a fellow non-traditional (check out her blog).

And for those who have been waiting impatiently for my return, just a word of warning: I’m fairly overloaded for my last quarter, so posts will be coming, but may be a bit slow.  I’m planning on getting together with the non-trad author/mom/full-time student/intern for lunch soon, so I’ll have that up ASAP.
