Our students never have a dull moment, especially those who work tirelessly as Collegian editors and reporters. Their speedy reporting garnered attention and was featured on a national level this week — and we couldn’t be more proud of our students’ hard work.

NBC Nightly News led with coverage of Richmond-area storms Monday night, using some of the live-tweeting that Collegian staffers issued from campus tornado shelters. Thankfully, UR was not greatly impacted, but after nearly three hours of back-to-back tornado warnings, it was a tense situation for all. We’re proud of our students who worked swiftly to report in real time.

Our journalism majors are setting the example for others in their field. Congratulations on your national nod toward a job well done!
