Final Thoughts for Exam Week

I would like to start off by saying that this was possibly my favorite class thus far at Mary Washington. Considering that I am only here for one more semester, I can’t imagine that I will find another that I enjoy so thoroughly. 1) Top three things you liked about the class structure. (In no […]

The Finale!

When the Images group received the specifics for our project, we didn’t’ know each other. However we agreed that we would need to approach this task with a unified front, meaning that we felt it was important to agree on our process and on how we wanted to execute this project with efficiency and attention […]

Yay to Creativity Day!!!

Today I feel like we accomplished something special. I am quite proud of the fact that the Mary Washington through the Years site will be saved and archived in the special collections of the school.

What a Week

To reiterate my title, WHAT A WEEK! I am sure that this week will be no different. On Thursday after we presented our 5 minute update, and after I finished my classes for the day, I traveled to Washington, DC to attend one of the most interesting seminars I have ever seen! It was called […]

21st Century Encyclopedia

Jimmy Wales is not your mothers door to door encyclopedia salesman; he is the “King” of a rag tag bunch of cyber geniuses who created the powerhouse that is known as Wikipedia.  I did a little research on…you guessed it wikipedia and found out that Wiki software, which in my humble opinion , is one […]
