The Eagle News
Five is the magic number.
Nearly 550 volunteers participated at nearly 55 jobsites during the fifth annual The Big Event Saturday. The Big Event is a one-day, student-based community service day. The event started at Texas A&M University, College Station, in 1982. Shaunda French, communication and social sciences associate professor, brought TBE to CSC in 2013.
The Eagles only tallied two in the wins column of the six games this week. The Eagles lost three of the four games against Colorado School of Mines, Golden, Friday and Saturday, and one of two games against the University of Nebraska at Kearney, at home Tuesday.
CSC’s softball team won the four-game series against Black Hills State University, Spearfish, South Dakota, at the Chadron State Softball Field Saturday and Sunday.
Volunteers who participated in the fifth The Big Event were able to provide some much-needed help to community members and to each other. The Big Event is a direct way for students and faculty to give back to the town and show their appreciation to the businesses and various areas
Journalists in today’s world are thought of as having a hidden agenda, of stretching the truth, and of attacking certain people. Journalism is claimed as “fake news.”
Merriam-Webster’s dictionary defines journalism as “the collection and editing of news for presentation through the media, the public press, an academic study concerned with the collection and editing of news or the management of a news medium; and writing designed for publication in a newspaper or magazine, writing characterized by a direct presentation of facts or description of events without an attempt at interpretation.”
Journalists are often thought of as threats, as enemies, typically by individuals who claim journalists are out to get them.
Man, the struggle is real…
It is time to leave CSC.
I started my college career at Chadron State on New Student Orientation day Aug. 15, 2013. I attended my first class on Monday, Aug. 19, 2013, sat through my first newspaper meeting Tuesday, Aug. 20, 2013, and my first story was published Thursday, Aug. 22, 2013. My byline featured the title sports editor in the Aug. 29, 2013, edition of The Eagle.
To the Editor:
