Celebration!

On our second to last day of classes – the professors brought in cake and champagne into the newsroom….ok – it should be called ‘sparkling wine’ – since the alcoholic stuff wasn’t made in the region of Champagne, France.

Still…students pulled themselves away from their computers and stories….and joined the news bureau for toasts to the quarter and to each other.

One big happy family…

Some folks were still filing stories for their stations and papers. Some broadcast reporters just got back from the baseball hearings on Capitol Hill.
