“There are so many time options, really, there’s no excuse to miss this!”
That was a healthier, chirpier version of myself when I commented on this blog that there’s no excuse to miss “The Tempest.” I planned to go Sunday afternoon.
Three boxes of Kleenexes, two packages of cough drops and a gallon of Nyquil later (OK, maybe not a gallon), I stand, or rather slouch,exhausted, corrected.
What now appears to be the never-ending head cold kept me from catching “The Tempest” this weekend, but I’ll try again this coming weekend. Of course, I’m also saying that about everything else I wanted to do this past weekend but couldn’t, so at this point I might have to eat my words.
In the meantime, check out this story on it in Vox, complete with an amazing photo taken by our photographer, Corey Ransberg.
I’m going to blame illness for my lack of blog updates, too. It seems to be taking me twice as long to get something done as it normally does. I’m finding myself having to keep up with Stephens. This morning, I actually balked at the idea of having to write three stories by Monday. As in a week from today.
Once I’ve fully recovered, I’ll laugh at myself for that.
In the meantime, I hope you’ve been refreshing the Stephens College homepage frequently because we’re keeping it up to date with the latest news and info around campus.
Rudi Petry is receiving a Kansas City ADDY Award this month from the American Advertising Federation of Kansas City. That’s a really huge deal. Just Google “Kansas City ADDY” and you’ll see it’s the largest regional ADDY contest in the country. Rudi will be rubbing elbows with the best of the best in the industry.
Check out her story and amazing award-winning design here.
And read about our student reporters from Stephens Life making their TV debut. The newspaper-turned-news magazine and website is now on Columbia Access Television, where students are reporting on fashion, campus news, weather and entertainment. Stephens Life News also shows the great teamwork going on across campus—it’s a collaboration between Joshua Nichol-Caddy’s advanced reporting class and Chase Thompson’s advanced studio production class. (I told you I’d have more examples of interdisciplinary work here). And check out the Feb. 8 edition here.
We have a lot more to tell you this week so keep checking the homepage.
I might be working slower than normal but that doesn’t mean Stephens is slowing down.
