For National Magazine Award winner Don Belt, good storytelling is as easy as taking a walk.

Award-winning National Geographic contributor Don Belt instructs his students at the University of Richmond to walk outside and make a map of what they see. They take photos. They ignore the age-old saying “don’t talk to strangers.” This is what Belt calls “taking a walk,” and it is what he encouraged Syracuse students to do at a lecture in the Hergenhan Auditorium this Thursday in a lecture titled “Slow Journalism: Integrating Digital into Traditional Storytelling.”

After reporting on the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, Marc Lamont Hill was left with a graphic image of teenager Michael Brown’s dead body.

On Aug. 9, 2014, police and authorities abandoned Brown for four and a half fours, Hill said neighbors told him. It was 95 degrees outside, Hill added, and children attempted to protect Brown’s body with a sheet, but it was too short to cover both his feet and head.

Class of 2016 graduates are determined to find careers they love even if it means finding jobs that are unrelated to their undergraduate degrees.

The month of May brings the promise of summer for most college students. But for graduates, it is a blaring reminder that the end of their college careers have arrived and time is running out to find a job before graduation.

Both Ohio University and Miami University had similar recycling programs, and both wanted to increase their recycling rates in dining halls and dorms.

“We didn’t know if it would work or not,” said Stacy Wheeler, president and co-founder of the tournament that became RecycleMania. “After the second week, I realized that we had created a monster.”
