My 100 Yard Commute

Shannon HoytEvery year students are given a chance to experience journalism through the University of Wisconsin-Stout’s student-led news source, Stoutonia.

As a member of Stoutonia, I have developed and experienced as an individual, while working with so many talented students. Each paper provides a chance to expose yourself to new information, events and interesting people around the community. Acquiring this knowledge is especially important in appreciating and understanding the local story.

Becoming a part of a team is always worthwhile. Collaborating and feeding off each other for constructive ideas, in the end, can only help build personal skills and social interaction.

One thought on “My 100 Yard Commute

  1. As a freshman in 1957 I was a feature writer for the Stoitonia it was a great introduction to college life. I learned a lot about different activities and honed my writing skills. Today I use those writing skills to produce a blog with almost daily posts. This is a personal diary of my art, family friends and activities.
