Nature Be Like, “I’m on the Bridge.”

A family of deer crossed the marshlands next to the Swanson bridge along with me. One stopped for a quick photo shoot at 4:46 p.m. It’s rather endearing. This picture captures an animal in its natural environment.
The underside of the Swanson Bridge can be just as pretty as the main part, especially at 12:24 p.m. This photo creates depth.
At 12:18 p.m. the water is being used as a mini mirror, and the rain droplets hitting the surface of the lake make for a tubular motion shot.

Y’all Mind If I Experience MCOM Real Quick

Garrett Stafford (left) and Laura Alyssa Platé (right) take a moment to discuss the ‘experience’ of the day after they helped lead six different sessions for prospective students who came with an interest in the field of mass communications.
There’s always time to be silly with friends. While eating lunch with the prospective students, Savannah Richards (left) and Hadley Cottingham (right) laugh along with their fellow Student Leadership Council members.
Before the high school students were let loose into the sessions, Dr. Joe Dennis, chair of the mass communications department, introduced each of his fellow faculty members and their roles in the experience.

Man Soccer

I didn’t understand any of this and my cutlines will be terrible. It was fun to watch people fall down and get hurt.

Cameron Verona Says “Soccer is Silly.” (Sports Assignment)

North Carolina-Wesleyan College’s goal keeper, Tobias Borzel, revs up to kick the ball back into play in the first quarter. An attempt from the Lions to score was made, but Borzel swiftly blocked the ball.
Before entering the fray, sophomore defender Jordan Melilo (right) takes a light-hearted moment to smile for the camera. He and his teammate, freshman defender Daniel Osavio Jr. (left), warm-up by running laps along the edge of the field before leaving the bench and entering the game.
From the bench, junior goal keeper Cameron Verona focuses on the game and cheers on his teammates playing on the field. At this point, the Lions were down by one, so Verona made sure to pull out all the motivational stops.
The yellow Nike vest comes off and it’s time for Melilo to enter the game once he finishes his warm-up. Here, he prepares to punt the ball back into play, as a hard kick had propelled it from the field.
