Scoping Out the Trends

BA, 2007

 

School of International Service (SIS) student Marissa Newhall did not just learn about the workplace and journalism; she lived it as the Editor-in-Chief for The Eagle -- American University's student-run newspaper.

The year before, Newhall worked as the managing editor of The Eagle's Arts and Features section. She and other Eagle staffers were offered the opportunity to participate in CNN's Campus Vibe Trendsetters blogs. Newhall accepted a position as a paid blogger for CNN, submitting three to five blog entries a week. She also snapped photos about on-campus fashion trends.
