From Our New York Outpost

A college newspaper needs a quote. Why not from USF's own Jen Bayley, who's in NYC doing PR for The Limited. What's interesting is that Jen went to the heartland, i.e., Columbus, Ohio, and that was her path to the big time.

Good Job for a A Young Reporter

This note from Maureen O'Sullivan in USF's Psychology Department:

An acquaintance, Jim Kravets, who is the editor of a weekly trying to compete with the Point Reyes Light, is looking for a news editor/reporter.

If so, let me know.
