Pre-Spring Break Luau Event Informs Students How To Stay Safe During Break

The Wednesday before Central Michigan University’s 2017 Spring Break a Pre-Spring Break Luau was hosted in the UC Rotunda. The purpose of this event was to inform students on how to stay safe wherever they are going for break.

The event had tables where guests could play games and be informed on how to be safe when consuming alcohol, and other substances.



When you ask a student athlete what they are majoring in, common responses include, Exercise Science, Sports Management, Nutrition, Health Sciences, and Criminal Justice.

So you can imagine the surprise when I answer with “Photojournalism”.

I am a high jumper for Central Michigan University who has loved photography from the moment  I started taking pictures. Whenever I tell people that my major is Photojournalism, I get responses like a surprised “Oh!” or “That’s interesting!” or “What do you plan to do with that?”.

My usual response is that I want to work for a newspaper or a magazine.

While my teammates who major in Exercise Science look at people for injuries, I look at people for stories.

Right now I am in JRN 340 Intro to Digital Journalism, and I plan to use this blog to display the work I do in this class.
