Challenging story

May 10th, 2011

I wrote a variety of different stories this semester for the Student Voice, I even wrote my first sports story. But the most challenging story to do this was the marketing story. This was a follow up story to the marketing story that I had done last semester. I wasn’t very eager to do this […]

Covering campus community

May 10th, 2011

Covering the campus community has been a wonderful experience this year. I met some very interesting people whom I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to meet had I not written a story about them. I also heard and reported about their stories. I enjoy asking questions and hearing the stories that people have to tell. […]

Always check everything is working for an interview

May 10th, 2011

A story I have thought about throughout the semester is my story I did for Falcon 411 about the Shape of Things cast. I went through the whole interview and it was great; the two leads in the play were awesome and gave very personable answers and my questions were flowing conversationally. Until I looked […]

UWRF campus reporting not reality

May 9th, 2011

Reporting for the Student Voice this semester was everything that I had hoped it would be. It was exhilarating, challenging, fun, and easy. Now when I say it was easy, I don’t mean that I didn’t run into sources that were rude, that didn’t want to divulge information or that disregarded my emails. I also […]

UWRF staff worried about benefits

May 9th, 2011

One of the more memorable stories that I wrote this semester was about the budget repair bill and its potential impact on state employee’s retirement benefits. Throughout the semester, several of my contacts would inform me about newsworthy issues that they thought I should write about or at least look into. Around mid semester, one […]

Making your own future in journalism…

May 8th, 2011

It’s weird to think that after all these years of information gathering, reporting and media law classes that I am now suppose to go out into the world and show them what I can do with words. I have received the tools to succeed from people who have been there. I have written the stories […]

Do we actually cover the campus “community?”

May 8th, 2011

When asked to cover the campus community, as a reporter you really have to ask yourself what does this mean? To one reporter this could mean something completely different than it does to another. For me, this task was to cover groups that were not always recognized by campus media. What I found was that […]

Dance Theatre

May 8th, 2011

I found that the story that I enjoyed reporting on the most was the one about the Spring Concert Series presented by the participants of Dance Theatre. This was an organization that I was unfamiliar with until I was asked to cover this particular story. I had the honor to work with a group of […]

My first wrap around: Finals Fest

May 7th, 2011

Every time I think of this wrap around all I hear is “JASON DERULO”. My first wraparound was for finals fest at UWRF. Our guest was Jason Derulo. I initially did th story because I heard a lot of buzzing around campus wondering why he was coming and not someone else. I wanted to get […]
