Immediately after an underwhelming session, I went to “The Successful Sports Section” with Nils Rosdahl of North Idaho College. Nils is a fantastic gentleman, and I enjoyed listening to him tell his background.
But the description of the session was about balancing the sports stories, photos and design for a successful section, and I feel like this session did not delve into that. Nils went deeply into things that worked for his paper, but many of his examples cannot carry over to me at Elon (like, for example, Elon cannot do a story about an on-campus rowing club).
Overall, I enjoyed listening to Nils’ story. But in terms of the goals of the session, I did not take away much.
