iMPrint Magazine: College Life's Internet Magazine has added an Editor's Blog, linked off the homepage. Editor Chris Baxter will use the blog to give readers an insider's look into iMPrint, including production, projects, future goals and relevant issues in digital journalism.

iMPrint hopes to provide full access to readers, while also engaging its audience in the ever-changing landscape of media content presentation on the Internet. For example, the blog's first post addresses the on-going problem of the 'feedback' option on articles and how (and if) they should be moderated.

As always, keeping you, the reader, informed.


Chris Baxter, editor

They will also be presenting and participating in Cesky Krumlov's annual art symposium which is concurrent with the exhibition.

As you know, in order to be enrolled in the College’s health plans, any dependent child beyond the age of 19, must be enrolled as a full time student in accredited college or university. Therefore, it is necessary to verify student status for any dependents age 19 to 25. Healthnow will be sending student certifications forms out starting next week for all dependent children who fall within this age group. It is important to complete this form and return it to Healthnow within 30 days to avoid interruption of coverage. Children who are graduating at the end of this academic year will be covered through August 31, 2006. In addition to completing this form, please contact the Benefits department at 4-3245, to notify us of any changes to your dependent coverage.
