Slideshow | Day in the life

A day in the life at St. Thomas.

I’ll be honest: I actually stole the idea from the 2011 MN Daily “Day in the Life” slideshow that I stumbled upon last year. So this year, I proposed the idea to the other editors and our only other photojournalist, and she and I decided to go for it. It started as a 12-hour thing, but at the last second we manned (womanned?) up and took on a full day of taking pictures. We both did get a little sleep, but it wasn’t much, at least on my end. The picture above is the last shot of the slideshow, taken at 11:59 p.m. St. Thomas is kind of known for the arches and has a tradition that when someone gets kissed under them at midnight, he/she becomes a “True Tommie.”

Video package | Campus squirrels

Are you going to eat that? Campus squirrels will.

(Mostly) everyone loves the campus squirrels, so we decided it was time to find out more about these cute critters. I investigated whether the food these squirrels eat is making them unhealthy. I will say, the squirrels were quite elusive when I was walking around and attempting to get footage, but with enough patience, I got what I needed. I also made the above rotator for my story!

Our new $60 million student center was set to open Jan. 17. It was a privilege doing this story, as I had the chance to take a tour of and photograph the whole building. The story includes some video clips of the tour! I am one lucky college student.

Slideshow | Winter

Winter views of campus.

Season slideshows are my favorite. They allow for low-level stress & high-level creativity. I also tried something new with this one – there are a few video clips interspersed with the pictures.
