We started this blog to show our journalistic skills. This blog will be primarily curated for our MCO 496 Senior Seminar class. The stories we share deal with news stories of all types, whether they are about sports, entertainment or politics. With a small staff of just three writers, we take our duty seriously to bring the most accurate news to the class.
