Capping It Up

Posted by Emilie Ehrman in My Pas de Deux. No Comments

29th February

As I prepare to graduate in a short 64 days, I am chin-deep in several projects, two of which are capstones for my two majors – that’s right, two majors means two projects! My two capstone projects are very different from each other.

My Public Relations Capstone: Digital Media Project

A communication major can choose a few different options when planning their capstone project. Most PR students, such as myself, create some sort of public relations project. I am creating a Facebook page and website and editing the business card for my client, Veterinary Medical Hospital (who just so happens to be my father). Jordyn, a journalism and animal science major, is writing a thesis paper on the rabies virus. Alyssa, a journalism major, is running and hosting her own radio show and live debate. One PR student, Yiye,  is revamping QQ’s … Read More »



“Cat-astrophe” Averted – Internship Tales

Posted by Madison Simmons in Tales from the Barn. No Comments

16th February

The sound of clanging, banging and crashing emitted from the back room as Dr. Kerns and one of the TAs were in the room trying to get a cat ready for a declaw and neuter. Everyone else was in the other room busy at work and stopped at the sound of all the ruckus. One of the cats had gotten loose and had climbed up onto the shelf and was making it an interesting challenge to catch him.

Shortly after it was another cat’s turn and getting him out of the carrier was definitely easier said than done. Welding gloves and a towel were used to keep the assistants safe and the cat safe as they tried to wrap up the cat and get him out of the carrier.

The past few weeks at my internship have been eventful evenings none the … Read More »



The Agents of Procrastination

Posted by Jessica Meek in Aloha, Findlay!. No Comments

12th February

Procrastination never works alone. It has many little helpers. Little Jessica (my thoughts personified) is often susceptible to a number of Procrastination’s Internet thugs, leaving me unable to, oh, write the paper that’s due Tuesday. The Procrastination Gang is a menacing bunch, isn’t it? And I only included five of them.

I have to say, I’m unusually afflicted by Procrastination at the moment. I started writing this comic last week, and only finished it now. I’m not even that busy, I just don’t want to do anything.
