Cronin ’17 Produced Series on Arkansas River

Dana Cronin, who just graduated on Monday, finished off her CC career by working with Andrea Chalfin, KRCC’s Managing Editor. Dana finished a three-part series on climate change along the Arkansas River, and the first piece ran yesterday. The other two pieces, featuring visits to the Upper and Lower Arkansas River Valleys, will air today and tomorrow.
Dana started working at the station during the summer between her freshman and sophomore years. As an environmental science major and a journalism minor, these final pieces are a wonderful expression of her time at CC.  Now, Dana is off to start her internship with KQED in San Francisco, and we all look forward to hearing her on the radio in the future!

Go Katie! Go Tigers!

Seniors Celebrate!

The annual tradition of the champagne pop at noon on the fourth Wednesday of Block 8 went off in grand style! It’s a special CC moment when seniors celebrate all they have achieved over their college careers.

This year, we added a senior barbeque at Alumni Plaza to the tradition. As you can see from these photos, it was a hit!

During these last few weeks, students often ask the question – “Do you have any advice for graduating seniors?”

CC parent, chair of the CC Parents’ Council, and head of the Case Foundation, Jean Case, recently offered an excellent answer to this question in Forbes magazine. She does a great job of summarizing the foundation’s research on this generation of graduates, and translating it into very helpful guidance.
