We rock!

cole-photo-illustrationCongratulations to Cole Norum, who was a regional winner in the Society of Professional Journalists Mark of Excellence contest. Cole was recognized for a photo illustration for Drake Magazine; his work will now move up to the national competition. National winners will be notified in late spring.

Drake Magazine was a finalist for best student magazine in the contest, and Think was a finalist for best digital-only student publication.
